From my infancy I’ve been fascinated by music. From the age of four I listened to a vast variety of records on my little mono record player. All these different musical styles formed my particular musical taste and feeling. At age twelve I started playing the guitar and at fifteen I already formed my first group, a rock ’n roll band called “The Jailbirds”. Soon I became a lead singer. I attended the Conservatory of Amsterdam and studied vocals piano and compositon. Since that time I have been playing numerous gigs and projects in various groups in different settings and countries with The Netherlands, Spain, Hungary, Finland, Belgium and Germany among them. At this stage of my career I am a singer songwriter, composing, singing and playing my own songs, while accompanying myself on guitar and piano. I record my own music which is available on iTunes. The gallery of this website can provide you with more information about my current music and that of my past projects. I am available to play concerts in any kind of style, in any kind of formation, on all kinds of occasions.
Early in my musical career I started to write my own songs. I studied composition at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. I have been associated with EMI Music Publishing and Record Company for many years as a songwriter and lyricist. This has resulted in many interesting recordings. One of my favourite examples is the single “Save My Soul/Calendar Girl” recorded by the group “Superglue”. I have a vast catalogue of songs in stock and I am available to write music and songs in any style about any topic for commercial and non-commercial use.
There has always been a teacher in me. It is fascinating to share my knowledge with anyone who is interested. At a very early stage in my career I started teaching music. I have been teaching various instruments at different musical institutes before I founded my own music school “Ed Venture Music”. I teach vocals, guitar (classical/acoustic/electric) electric bass, piano, keyboard, organ, composing, songwriting, music production and I prepare people to attend the conservatory.
