Jan de Winne teaches traverso, chamber music and treatise studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris and at the Royal Conservatorium of Brussels.

Having obtained his degrees in musicology and art history at the University of Ghent he concentrated his studies on the baroque flute under Barthold Kuijken. He has performed with many leading early music ensembles (amongst which Il Fondamento, Salzburger Barockorchester, Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra) and took part in the orchestras under the direction of Philippe Herreweghe before founding the chamber music ensemble Il Gardelino with whom he has made numerous recordings (cantatas by Telemann, piano trios by J. Haydn, concertos by Boismortier, quartets by C.P.E. Bach, etc.).

His experience as an instrument maker of both baroque and classical flutes provides him with an expertise on all the practical facets of the instrument.
