The Dutch conductor and organist, Hendrik Timmerman, studied from his sixth year piano and organ with Jac. Kort and Cor Kee respectively. He studied organ-UM school music, choir and orchestra conducting at the Academies of Music in Amsterdam and Hilversum. He also received his first degree qualifications as a Church Musician (Cantor-Organist).
