Described as “mature beyond his age” and a “…bright and shining star in the firmament of the South African music scene,” by newspaper Beeld, Willem de Beer is quickly becoming one of the foremost South African concert pianists.

During 2014, Willem received his BMus cum laude under the guidance of Professor Joseph Stanford. Willem has been featured on several television programmes in South Africa and recordings of his playing is often broadcast on radio by stations RSG and ClassicFm; Willem recently completed a Master’s degree under the guidance of Dr. Bryan Wallick. As of August 2018, Willem will pursue a second Master’s degree in Austin, Texas under the guidance of Professor Anton Nel.
