Hendrik Müller began his musical career at the age of six years with the classical piano. Soon the double bass was added and during a one-year stay in the USA, he discovered his love for jazz. In 2006 he won a solo prize at the national competition "Jugend jazzt" in North Rhine-Westphalia. Hendrik studied double and electric bass at the Hamburg University of Music & Performing Arts and at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
