Jyoti Verhoeff is a singer-songwriter, composer and pianist. At the age of four, she discovered the expressionistic power of the grand piano, while visiting the house of composer Simeon ten Holt, a friend of the family. She started playing by herself at the age of eight when her parents bought her a piano.
Having been born with disabled eye vision, she had to find ways beyond the usual ways of studying music to express her rich inner world through the piano and with her voice. Because of her dedication and unique talent for music she was able to develop a virtuoso piano technique and an authentic and organic style of composing.
Her reduced eye vision made her highly sensitive and she has a very accurate and detailed hearing. Jyoti: "Music became a journey to become fully present in every frequency of a note, a growing awareness of an intense and deep way to communicate beyond our common belief structures."
