A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
1996 My first classical guitar lessens with Jurgen De Bruyn (Bornem, Antwerp)
2001 studying classical guitar at 'dé kunsthumaniora' with Robert Denies (Antwerp)
2004 The guitarbuildingmicrobe took me and I entered ILSA (Boom, Antwerp)
2007 I started at the CMB Puurs with classical and historical guitar building.
Here I had the chance to participate in two great projects:
- The Leonardo guitar Project, building guitars with sustainable woods
- A Rene Lacote project, building, measuring and copying these guitars under the guidance of Walter Verreydt.
2012 I'm an official guitar builder, especially Historical & Classical guitars.
As we speak, my guitar playing (barok guitar) is guided by player/builder Dirk De Hertogh, someone who I have the deepest respect for.
Since 2011 I teach a yearly week course round instrument building for MuziekMozaik – Gooik.
