Tamara Laverman started playing the piano at the age of 8, taking lessons with a private teacher. Though she liked to play and enjoyed the music, she only realized at the age of 16 the artistic field could mean more to her than just a hobby. In 2011 she started in a preparatory course at ArtEZ university of the arts in Arnhem, taking piano lessons with the pianist Frank Peters. In 2013 she started the bachelor classical piano at ArtEZ university of the arts in Zwolle, a school also housing other art disciplines like fine art, creative writing, dance etc. and therefore known for its interdisciplinary study.
During her bachelor she had several projects with these different faculties searching for new ways of performing. It was in this period when she discovered the love of composing herself and chose to take composition lessons in the last two years of her study.
In June 2017 she finished her bachelor degree, taking piano lessons with Frank van der Laar and composition lessons with Wilbert Bulsink. She is also active in a piano duo, Laverman&Scheffer, a duo focusing on 20th and 21st century music trying new ways for listeners to experience contemporary classical music.
