First under the guidance of Tom Burmanje and later under that of Enno Voorhorst. In 2012 he obtained his bachelor's degree with an 9,5.
In that same year he started his master studies at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven with Raphaella Smits. The romantic 'Stauffer' guitar was central in this and he researched the life of Luigi Legnani. In 2014 he obtained his master's degree with magna cum laude.
