My musical adventure started when I got a toy drum as a kid. Apparently I was drumming on the pots and pans all the time. Around the age of 10 we moved to the coast, and by coincidence, there was a grand piano waiting for me. The former people who rented the place couldn't bring the piano to their new home, so it stayed with us for 5 years. Meanwhile I decided to go to classic school. In the fifth year I was improvising on and making music like Mozart and Beethoven, my biggest influences so far.
That brought me into the world of Afro-American music. At first I started playing Blues and Funk and later on I went to Jazz-studio, the only jazz school in Belgium at that time.
Meanwhile I was making my own compositions for jazz combo and piano solo. A few years later I had the idea to make improvisations based on a scale, a couple of notes, a rhythm, a motive or nothing at all. That broadened my vision on music and piano playing.
Then after 25 years of playing piano I was listening to the classical radio station in the car and that inspired me to compose classical-like music with more emphasis on the left hand.
Now the circle of music is round and I will continue my musical pathway in all directions. A piano solo recording is one of my main goals in music now and I'll try to achieve that as soon as possible...
