Once in a while Harm Jan will write about things he experiences in everyday life, mostly concerning music. "It's more a column than it is a blog. I notice a lot of remarkable things in my daily life, especially as a composer, and I have an opinion about that. It seems that my followers are interested in this. A blog is a nice tool to share my thoughts with them." Do you want to be the first one to receive Harm Jan's columns? Send an email to and subscribe!
