My name is Theo Hartman. I began playing cornet at the age of 9. I studied the trumpet succesfully at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, The Netherlands. Among my teachers were Theo Laanen (Residentie Orchestra, The Hague) and John Taber (Residentie Orchestra, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine). From 1985 till 1990 I played as assistant principal trumpeter with the Haifa Symphony Orchestra in Israel. With the Haifa Brass Quartet I performed also extensively in Israel. After returning to The Netherlands I have been performing with the Radio Symphony Orchestra and many more Dutch orchestras. In 2006 I initiated my own brass ensemble ‘Continuous Brass’ which is still performing. In 2015 I have been the initiator to start the ‘Triple Berry Trio’. Recently in autumn 2017 I have created a new unique and exciting duo with classical guitar and trumpet called ‘Duo Beyond Limits’. For small ensembles I am running my ‘TNCB Productions’ and next to that I am an enthusiastic brass teacher with a lot of experience.
