Camille is a classically trained clarinet player who decided to study the classical clarinet after discovering the free improvisation scene in Amsterdam (thanks to Corrie van Binsbergen's BrokkenFabriek). In June 2015 she finished her classical Bachelor studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag with Pierre Woudenberg, who was also the clarinet teacher of her main inspirator David Kweksilber. The titel of her final exam was "I won't stick my meaning under steals or banks", which is a promise to herself (and a reference to her Bachelor thesis in Philosophy about understanding language and music).
At the moment Camille continues her musical studies at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam through the program 'Contemporary Music Through Non-Western Techniques', in the classical as well as the jazz track. She also continues to develop her improvisational skills through active participation in the music and dance improvisation scenes of the Netherlands; broadens her jazz technique and ear by playing in the band of double-bass player Uldis Vitols and deepens her classical roots through personal study, giving small concerts and teaching. Last but not least she is a member of the GoedLaak Ensemble, that gives interactive concerts with often several world premières per concert.
In this and other contexts, Camille has premièred works by Krists Auznieks, Tijmen van Tol , Yael Levy, Georgi Sztojanov and Thierry Tidrow (Dutch National Opera Academy), Maya Felixbrodt, Sascha Thiele, Brechtje van Dijk, Uldis Vitols, Corné Roos, and many more.
Apart from her own Wurlitzer b-flat- and a-clarinets, Camille also has the honour of playing on the Noblet e-flat- and Selmer bass-clarinet of the late Jazz legend Willem Breuker.
