From an early age, Pieter-Jan developed a passion for historical instruments. After taking private harpsichord lessons with Dimos De Beun while studying piano at the Conservatory of Bruges, he had his first encounter with the fortepiano in 2014, at the masterclasses of Anima Eterna Brugge. In 2017 he started studying harpsichord with Bart Naessens and fortepiano with Claire Chevallier at the Royal Conservatories of Brussels. He received the third prize at the Sigismundus Lauxmin International Harpsichord Contest in 2020. Pieter-Jan is frequently asked as a historical keyboard player by renowned orchestras and ensembles like Anima Eterna Brugge, the Terra Nova Collective and the Belgian National Orchestra. He takes part in masterclasses both as a soloist and as an accompanist with early music specialists like Jos Van Immerseel, Marten Root and Catalina Vicens. He is currently studying with Menno van Delft at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
