Rein Godefroy

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
