Biography

foto: Bruno Bollaert

Geert Hellings’ roots initially lay with blues and pop, but that soon changed when Hellings’ father introduced him to jazz when he was fifteen.

He took classes with various private tutors and also joined the Mortsel youth music workshop, where he took piano, guitar as well as saxophone lessons. After graduating in Germanic philology, he went to the Antwerp Conservatoire, where Hendrik Braeckman and Martijn Van Iterson brought out the best of the guitarist in him. (c) JazzLab Series 2008
