"If I can play it, I can also choose not to play it."

When I took up playing the recorder in my childhood, I especially liked playing modern repertoire with all nice special effects. It stimulated my fantasy. Years later, when I started to study the flute with mostly classical repertoire, I totally forgot these great effects. I was too busy trying to control my instrument.

During one of Will Offermans' master classes, I again got in touch with extended playing techniques. A whole new world of possibilities opened up before me. Not only did I discover new ways of playing the flute, I also found that studying these techniques increased my control over the instrument! Furthermore, it had a very positive effect on my regular playing technique.

I'm always telling people: "If I can play it, I can choose not to play it."

I developed Flute Colors to share my findings about contemporary techniques with all flute players, so everyone can experience the benefits of using them as well. I've written the books and created the website in a way they can be used by amateurs as well as professionals of all ages and of all experience levels.

And above all I've tried to make it a fun experience. Expect serious results, but don't be too serious about the concept of using contemporary techniques. Just do it! Just have fun!

I love these series of videos on extented techniques by Rogier de Pijper. Last winter I got his book from www.flutecolors.com and it is brilliant! Great ideas, great teaching material, very clear instructions. Thank you, Rogier, for doing such an amazing job!

Being a new generation flute teacher I know I have to keep up with my pupils. Flute Colors helps to develop sound and technique wrapped in modern (pop)songs but also in classic material!

Bound by short lessons, working with Flute Colors arrangements is very efficiently.

I often use the Flute Colors arrangements in my lessons. Famous tunes, popmusic and classical music wrapped into a different style. This makes it easier and more accessible to practise and study contemporary techniques. Highly recommended!
