Stan Nieuwenhuis is an award winning composer, performer and sound engineer. He loves to share his passion for creating music and sound through workshops, teaching and conducting.
As a composer I’m constantly observing the world we live in. The contrasts, the hope, the bullshit, all of it. All the music I write is a crossover from different styles I got to know growing up. From brassband to pop, from classical to electronic music. This versatility is what defines me as a composer.
I like to be on stage, but somewhere in the corner is fine, unless I’m conducting, then I’ll gladly take the center stage, obviously. You can come see me perform in musical theater pieces, as the conductor of a brassband or as a part of doux. Check my facebook for details!
I trained as a sound engineer at SAE Rotterdam, because I have a fascination for sound and I wanted to learn the skill. Usually I always have some kind of sound engineering project going on. Ask me about it!

I really like teaching people about music and sound. Especially when I can do it in a new and innovative way, thinking outside the box. I’ve started teaching more in recent years, in different fields (like composing and soundscaping) and I especially love the combination of using my real life skills in the class room and being driven by my students’ work to keep making new things.
