Bram Weijters

Eight years old, Bram started music courses at the music school in his birth town, attending piano and percussion classes. As a teenager he played in several rockbands. After completing secondary education, he was admitted to the Antwerp Conservatory. Amongst his teachers were Erik Vermeulen and Christoph Erbstösser. After graduating for jazz piano in Antwerp he went to the Brussels Conservatory, where he graduated in 2005 for jazzcompostion and arranging.

Bram took lessons and attended masterclasses a.o. from Kenny Werner, Anthony Braxton, Gary Peacock, Mark Turner, Dave Liebman, Bill Carrotters, Bert Joris, …

Bram participated in a wide range of projects. He's mainly involved in jazz formations but doesn't limit himself to jazz. He performed as well with people from the hip hopscene like as with rockgroups.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
