José Retra 

A music pedagoge with research experience, and a composer/arranger, my aim is to awaken musical artistic curiosity and expansion of musical skills. As a musician I am active as a composer and arranger for special concerts for young children as well as different ensembles. Through my musical activities - playing the piano in ensembles, conducting orchestra’s - I maintain an active life as a musician, the important experience of which will also flow into my pedagogical practices.

I obtained my PhD in Education with Susan Young, specialising in Early Childhood Music Education from the University of Exeter (UK) in 2011. I have a degree in Psychology for Musicians, MA, University of Sheffield (UK), a Bachelor in Pedagogy (Nijmegen, NL), a post-bachelor degree in preschool music education (Music on the Lap) (2001), conservatory of Amsterdam and a B.Mus. in piano teaching from the conservatory of Arnhem (NL). I studied composition with Andries van Rossem. Currently I am studying orchestral conducting with Jim Roodnat.  

 

 

Als muziekpedagoge, met onderzoekservaring, en componist/arrangeur is het mijn streven om muzikaal artistieke nieuwsgierigheid te doen ontwaken en muzikale vaardigheden te stimuleren.  Ik componeer en arrangeer voor verschillende bezettingen waaronder speciale concerten voor jonge kinderen. Aan de universiteit van Exeter, UK, heb ik mijn PhD behaald in Education by Susan Young. Ik heb compositie gestudeerd bij Andries van Rossem en aan het conservatorium van Rotterdam. Momenteel studeer ik Orkestdirectie bij Jim Roodnat.
