Jeroen has helped lead Stillwater Music since 2013. His first introduction to Stillwater Music was watching his children perform in their school music classes, which were taught by Stillwater Music. He was totally impressed with the Stillwater “be in a band” approach to teaching music to children! As a musician himself, he gradually started getting involved with the organization and before too long, decided to give up his career as a business technology consultant for a number of Fortune 500 companies and joined the Stillwater Team.
Jeroen is a talented violinist and vocalist who has performed professionally in a range of musical styles including classical, jazz, Latin jazz, Andean folkloric and traditional Afro-Cuban as well as Balkan, klezmer and contemporary folk. He studied music at Berklee College of Music, Cornish College of the Arts and Naropa University.
He and his wife, dancer and choreographer Anne Bartlett, are directors and founding members of 20Moons, a Durango-based dance theatre company. Their kids Jem, Naima and Teo are all active in the Stillwater music program.
