Pim Weierink (1991) started his study of classical music at the age of 17 at the ArtEZ Conservatory in Enschede. After studying classical / jazz guitar with Ulrich Steier, Sabrina Vlaskalic, and Reinier Baas, he decided to join the world of the Fingerstyle guitar. After having lessons from grandmaster Tommy Emmanuel, he wrote many arrangements and own compositions for the western guitar. Weierink knows by means of his great musical and technical knowledge how to bridge the gap between the different worlds of guitar styles.
