I started late on the violin (eleven years) with great personal interest in music. In 1986 I graduated from the Brussels conservatory and started my professional live by playing in several orchestras.

From 1993 until 2013 I played in ‘Spectra ensemble’. This ensemble is specialized in contemporary music. During this 20 years we played concerts everywhere in Europe.

In the same year I started to teach with the Suzuki method. Together with Veerle Van Gorp I founded the private school ‘Kortjakje’. This school for violin and cello is still very active and has at the moment more than 100 students.

As a teacher trainer I work together for many years with Veerle Van Gorp and Koen Rens in the Conservatory of Antwerp.

Being musician is my profession and a great hobby at the same time.
