Mariette Landheer

cellist & cellopedagogue


Mariëtte Landheer started her musical education in Curaçao, where she spent most of her childhood. She studied with Louise Gorsira and gave her first concerts at a young age.


In her hometown Bilthoven she started years ago with a cello class consisting of all age categories. A group of talented students emerged from that class, some of which found their way to a conservatory or good student orchestra.

In all those years that she has played the cello, she has never doubted her path: Mariette Landheer was born to make music.
The Curaçao came into contact with music at a young age and celebrated triumphs in the Netherlands with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and she also built up a successful teaching practice.
