Kim Stockx (1987), born in The Netherlands, started her music studies with the recorder. In 2005 she was admitted to the Royal Conservatory in The Hague to continue studying with Dorothea Winter and Daniël Brüggen.
After receiving her Bachelor of Music diploma in 2009, Kim decided to continue studying her second Bachelor studies, Dulcian, Baroque Bassoon and Classical Bassoon with Donna Agrell, Wouter Verschuren and Alberto Grazzi.
“I felt like I was not done yet, I wanted more. And since I had always been charmed by the rough, but flexible sound of the historical bassoon, the decision to start a second studies was quickly made”.
