Tom Beets

Tom Beets 

Tom was born in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium, in 1983 and has been an enthusiastic recorder player from an early age. He studied at the Lemmensinstitute in Leuven (Belgium) with Bart Spanhove and Bart Coen and then the Escola Superior de Musica de Catalunya (Spain) with Pedro Memelsdorff.

Apart from the usual baroque repertoire his interest lies in music history and medieval music performance. He has travelled across Europe and performed, both solo and with various ensembles. Tom has taken many masterclasses, in particular with Kees Boeke, Fumiharu Yoshimine, Marion Verbruggen and Andrew-Lawrence King.  Since 2007 he has toured the world with the Flanders Recorder Quartet.
