Jean-Pierre came in contact with the building of instruments when he worked for a builder of organs. He learned how to build harpsichords, clavichords and organs. During several years he worked hard on developping his skills and experience.

After some time he changed direction in life and started teaching in a professional school. Jean-Pierre teaches wood technics, wood sculpture and furniture restauration.

Several years passed, before the passion for building instruments reappeared. Then he attended a course at the CMB in Puurs, where teacher Mich De Bruyn tought him how to build the viola da gamba and teacher Marc Seghers tought him to build the violin.

Now Jean-Pierre combines his teacher’s job with his passion for building viola da gamba and violin.
