Tim De Maeseneer

Biography

Born in Vilvoorde Belgium from a family of music enthusiasts, Tim started to learn the Tenor-horn at the age of six. The decision to study music in secondary school didn't come as a surprise; he first began to study at the Secondary School of Music in Leuven and afterwards fulfilled this course in the "Kunsthumaniora Brussel". Having studied under the expert guidance of Frans Violet in Brussels, Tim moved to the Gent Conservatoire where he studied for two years under trumpet virtuoso Benny Wiame. Subsequently, Tim returned to Leuven to study at the LUCA (Leuven University & College of Arts) under saxhorn specialist Nick Ost. Special mention has to go to mentor/tutor Johan De Win, who always supported and taught with the upmost care.   

As guest soloist Tim has performed with a number of different orchestras in Belgium and beyond, such as the "Symfonie Orkest Vlaanderen BE", The project Brass Band WDR (West Deutche Rundfunk Köln) DE, European Youth Brass Band EU, Atlantic Brass Band USA, Brass Band Buizingen BE, Noord-Limburgse Brass Band BE ,The Wind Band of The Lithuanian Armed Forces LT, The Brassband of the British Army Catterick Garrison UK as well as the The Green Brassband TH.
