Oscar started his teaching career in 1999 as a teacher assistance for a kindergarten class. The class teacher loved to sing, but her tunes were unclear so one day he decided to borrow a guitar belonging to the security guard and started to play along in the class. When the Principal saw this, she challenged him to become a music teacher and he took the opportunity. Since then he has been teaching music in many international schools, and several National Plus Schools in South Jakarta and Bintaro area, teaching at almost all levels from early years all the way to secondary class.
Oscar has been with NIS since May 2015 and I loves it as it gives him the opportunity to explore different cultures, especially Dutch, the language his Grandfather used to speak to him when he was a child. Oscar lives with his wife and family (and dachshund) and his passion for music is a family affair, with all three of his children playing an instrument.
