Walter van de Leur

Since September 2007, I have been Professor of Jazz and Improvised Music at the University of Amsterdam whilst working as Research coordinator in the Jazz and Classical Masterís program at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.† This post requires me to deliver Music history electives in the Jazz Masters program and teach music history for the Bachelors programme.† Working across both University and Conservatoire settings has provided me with valuable insights into different musical environments and has enabled me to develop research interests that are both practically and theoretically focused.
