JC’s life is a reflection of his open-minded and versatile musicianship. Being from a Javanese, Sundanese and Dutch background, JC’s experienced five Indonesian cities during his childhood. Joining ACG School Jakarta in 2012, JC’s career spans more than 10 years, teaching and performing in the arts and music. It has ranged from his role as the organist at his local church to choir performances on the international stage. His love of teaching has seen JC guiding classroom learning with everyone from groups of adults through to enthusiast three years old. JC’s multicultural childhood shaped his values and attitudes towards music. He believes that every person, no matter their background, is ‘musical’ in a unique way. That the ultimate goal of a music class is for every individual to find and live their own ‘rhythm’ and ‘harmony’, in a socially harmonious ways. Outside of school JC enjoys having time with his family and also learning, either through online courses or just writing and sharing music.
