Most praised for his unique style and unerring consistency as a drummer, Tuur has developed a highly diversified artistic palette ranging from jazz and latin to African and Brazilian music. He mesmerizes audiences, performing in a deeply charged pace that begets soulful perfection. His love for traveling complemented with opportunities to perform live in various countries continue to expose him to differing styles and rhythms which had initially lead to the development of his signature style and is part of the reason why the powerful, innovative and creative core of his music speaks perfectly to the demands of the new collective music. Tuur is a highly demanded session- and studio musician and is active as regular drummer with LURA (Cape Vert), ANABELA AYA (Angola), MUNIR HOSSN (Brazil), TEUS NOBEL (Netherlands), ROGIER TELDERMAN TRIO (Netherlands) and more, touring all over the globe.
Subscribe for drum lessons!
I provide private drum lessons at my drum studios in Mechelen, Belgium and Rotterdam, The Netherlands. In my drum lessons I focus on each person’s needs;
everyone learns and develops in a different way and tempo. All levels: beginners, advanced and professionals are welcome from age 12. All styles can be discussed in the lessons, with specialty in Jazz & World Music styles (Brazlian, African, Cuban, Cape Verdian Music, Reggae, etc..). Groove, sound, technique, rudiments, independance, coordination, how to record and mix drums… are some subjects that can be discussed in the lessons. The drum lessons are given in Dutch or English. Online drum lessons are also possible.
“Drumles in Rotterdam”
Nebula is an ode to the universe. This album is dedicated to a dream about a very intense connection with our beautiful and mysterious universe. The picture you see on the cover, is an almost exact presentation of that dream.
The music is very melodic, groovy, from a jazz point of view with beautiful influences and grooves from Brazil and Africa.Musicians came together from al over the globe. A beautiful friendship and connection between Belgium, Portugal, Brazil, Netherlands and Spain, brings extra flavors and dimensions to the music.
