Henk Mennens


Born: 24, May 1956

Country: Netherlands

Studies: The Hague, Royal Conservatory / Brabant Conservatory



During studies at the music school in Kerkrade, Henk Mennens played in numerous ensembles (concert orchestra of the music school, mandolin orchestra, big band and percussion group). This increased the connection with the institute. When I was 16 years old, Henk Mennens passed the instructor's diploma for drum bands and became a percussion instructor at various corps. In addition to my MEAO study (administrative direction), I followed the HAFA course at the music school. After my HAFA D exam, Henk Mennens decided to continue studying music. From that time on Henk Mennens played in numerous concert bands. Since Henk Mennens studies at the various conservatories, Henk Mennens have been increasingly inspired and fascinated by percussion music in the broadest sense of the word. That's why Henk Mennens started writing music myself from that time on. This has resulted in numerous composition assignments, including the NIB's assignment to contribute to the expansion of the repertoire for the AD sector. Since 1990 Henk Mennens have been intensively involved in the development of percussion methods. This resulted in the creation of the 'Percussion All In' method, a book series intended for the training of percussionists in various disciplines. This method is currently used both at home and abroad.
