Michiel has always had a strong love for music. When he was nine years old he started following guitarlessons. At the age of eleven he created his love for jazz, after hearing a jazz-album from the saxophonist Stan Getz. Besides always having played the guitar and for a short period also the saxophone, he later on started playing the piano at the age of 18, from that moment on that became his main instrument. In his latest project he is making a combination from Bach and jazz.
