Before he could read or write, Janos Bruneel (°1983) started piano lessons, but it was only at the age of 16 that he discovered his instrument: the bass. In 2008 he obtained his Master-degree with great distinction at the Royal Conservatories of The Hague (cum laude) and Brussels with Hein van de Geyn, Frans van der Hoeven and Christophe Wallemme. After graduation he was head teacher double bass at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague for 10 years. He currently teaches bass and harmony at the Royal Conservatory in Ghent, the Kunsthumaniora in Brussels and the academy of Berchem.
With different formations he has won numerous awards, such as the Sabam Youth and Music Jazz Award (2010) and co-composer Best Australian Jazz Song Of The Year (2012) with "Spir".
In his most recent project "Polyphonario", inspired by the music of the Flemish polyphonist Guillaume Dufay, he plays together with his father Carlos Bruneel (flute) and Bart Van Caenegem (pianoforte). He is also preparing his first solo record "janosolo".
He shared the stage with Eric Vloeimans, Stephane Belmondo, Angelo Verploegen, Anton Goudsmit, Jonas Knutsson, Jack van Poll, Dré Pallemaerts, Hans van Oosterhout and many others.
Together with Steven Cassiers he is the author and creator of the method Track & Play (Your Compass For Tonal Navigation).
