Camiel began making music at a very young age, playing classical piano from age 6. He started transcribing and playing works and was intrigued by the qualities of classical music. He studied at the Conservatory of Rotterdam, graduating Cum Laude in 2014, continuing a Masters program at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. During an exchange to Copenhagen in his bachelor, he discovered his affinity with composition, and wrote music for jazz quintet, pianotrio, choir and classical pieces for his string quartet. As a bass player, he’s very active in the Dutch jazz scene.
