Rowy van Hest

Although my father was a music teacher, I did not start learning to play an instrument until I was sixteen. At eighteen, I completed a concerto for strings. At nineteen, I was accepted at the Brabant Conservatory of Music.

Initially I wrote experimental music, but a few years after finishing my studies I returned to my roots. Since then, I have been writing tonal music, influenced by baroque music.

I am multi-talented and as a teenager I had to choose between studying at the conservatory of music and the art academy. I chose the conservatory, but I never stopped drawing. Throughout my life, I have developed myself as an artist. Have a look at my drawings.

Apart from compositions, I have also written many arrangements, including hundreds of classical ringtones. They are all free.

I'm also a writer, but I only write in Dutch. One of my books: Modern Times. This book is free as well. I think art should be free for everyone, but I do need some money to keep this website online.
