At the Royal Conservatory Koen discovered the ins and outs of jazz music, and started getting interested in other styles of music as well, like impressionism and neo soul. Next to that he started composing and experimenting with different groups with which he started playing around in the Dutch jazz scene.

In 2021 he graduated from his bachelor jazz piano, and started working with Dani Font, Cas Jiskoot and Tim Hennekes to form a quartet with which he played his original compositions and experimented with new grooves and style combinations.
