Yvo Staudt



Yvo Staudt (1991 Hengelo, The Netherlands) began playing piano-accordion when he was seven. He took lessons from Josine Hulshof at the School of Music in Hengelo until he successfully passed his final examinations in 2008. I Yvo has played in many ensembles, most notably in Animato, an orchestra for accordion players.

In August 2008 Yvo made two decisions, he chose to switch to an chromatic accordion and also to concentrate on Jazz. He took lessons from Harriët Markus (accordion player) and Rob Horsting (jazz pianist). After a year, Yvo met the noted piano player Bert van den Brink and until 2010 Yvo undertook private lessons with Bert van den Brink.

In September 2010, in conjunction with his high school studies, Yvo began studying accordion at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. His main subject, classical accordion, was taken with Marieke Grotenhuis. Yvo also undertook Master Classes from: Claudio Jacomucci, Geir Draugsvoll & Richard Galliano.

Between 2008 and 2010 Yvo formed and joined several of jazz ensembles, including Yvo Staudt Quintet, Yvo Staudt Trio and Shake That Jazz!.

With the generous assistance of several cultural funds, Yvo was able to purchase a new accordion. He travelled to Castelfidardo, Italy, to get his new beautiful and handcrafted accordion: a Pigini Sirius Super Bayan. Yvo is still playing on this wonderful instrument and is very grateful for the generosity of the cultural funds that helped him realize his hopes of a new accordion.

In February of 2011, Yvo met Claudio Jacomucci. This great accordionist inspired Yvo to come to Italy and to study classical accordion with him. So, currently Yvo lives in Pescara, Italy, where he studies at the Luisa D’Annunzio Conservatorio.

Musicians that inspire and motivate Yvo are:

Bert van den Brink, Glenn Gould, Benjamin Herman, Geir Draugsvoll, Christian Zacharias & James Crabb.



Currently Yvo studies with An Raskin at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, The Netherlands
