Job IJzerman

Job IJzerman teaches solfege, ensemble singing for vocal students, analysis, harmony, counterpoint in Baroque and Renaissance styles, and, more recently, pattern theory and partimento at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. His publications and conference papers cover a wide range of topics, from the non-measured preludes of Louis Couperin to the early atonal music of the Second Viennese School. In 2013-2015 he received a scholarship from the Dutch Department of Education, Culture and Science, which enabled him to conduct research into harmonic-contrapuntal schemata in the music of the early-nineteenth century, principally in Beethoven, Schubert, and Schumann. In continuation of this research project, Job IJzerman is now preparing a publication entitled Harmony, Counterpoint, Partimento (Oxford University Press, forthcoming).
