Rein Godefroy (Breda, 1982) was raised in a family filled with classical musicians. It
was no surprise that he started to play the piano when he was four.
After four years of playing and studying classical piano, Rein got more interested in
the jazz genre.
After two years of intensive jazz piano lessons with pianist John Reyna, he was
accepted at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. There he studied with pianists Rob
van Bavel and Juraj Stanik.
In 2006 he received his masters degree and graduated with distinction.
Since his graduation Rein played with numerous exiting but very diffent groups like
Fullduplexx and the Paul van Kemenade Quintet and he recorded several albums which
al got fantastic reviews.
Inspirited by those groups and recordings Rein decided to form his own trio in 2016
