Originally from the Netherlands, Luka has been immersed in the world of music from the age of five. Beginning with the recorder and piano, Luka has since progressed to the flute and is currently studying a combined double degree of Music Performance (flute) and Medical Science at the Australian National University.
Luka has had a vast range of performance opportunities, including having played first flute in James McCusker’s Orchestra and Canberra Youth Orchestra (CSO), as well as playing with the Domstad Jeugdorkest, The Utrecht Jeugdorkest and with ANU orchestra. He has also performed for the Hungarian Ambassador at his residence and has opened for a CSO concert at Government House.
Luka successfully completed his Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) Associate of Music Australia (AMusA) and his grade five AMEB Theory of Music exam in 2019. In 2020, he received two scholarships for his musical excellence, including the ACT Flute Society Scholarship, and the Leonard & Margaret Doman Scholarship.
Luka has been teaching for many years. He started as a tennis coach and has been a music teacher since 2016. Luka strives to make his lessons as enjoyable as they are constructive, and tailors every lesson to each individual student to best suit them and their strengths. He believes that music is a passion that can be found in every student and that, when guided with the proper enthusiasm and skill, this passion will lead to a love for music that will forever be present.
