In 2008 Brandt and harpist Astrid Haring were the first worldwide to form a bastrombone-harp duo. Since then more then 15 compositions were especially composed for their duo and they perform concerts from South-America to Asia and from Norway to Spain. As a basstrombone teacher, Brandt is connected to the Codarts conservatory in Rotterdam and the Royal conservatory in The Hague. As a soloist he has made several recordings and he performs all around the world. Brandt studied with Ben van Dijk and finished his master studies in 2003 with the highest grade possible.
