He also attended workshops from other great jazz artist such as John Scofield, Richard Bona, Jack DeJohnette, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Mike Stern. Meanwhile, he developed a talent in composing. In 2004, he was awarded with the first prize for best composition in the Dutch Jazz Competition for his original Gym-Jam included here.
