Since 1971 Wieland Kuijken has taught viola da gamba at the conservatoriums of The Hague and Brussels and is regularly invited to sit on the jury of international competitions (Bruges, Boston, Utrecht).
He was a member of La Petite Bande from the moment of its creation, and of the Kuijken string quartet since 1987.

Already early on, at the time of his classical studies, he became interested in early music and performing on historical instruments. At the age of 18 he began to study the viola da gamba as an autodidact.
His musical career was launched with the Brussels ensemble Alarius (from 1959 to 1972). At the same time he was a member of Musique Nouvelles, an ensemble specialising in avant-garde music, with whom he performed throughout Europe.
His international career continued to flourish with countless performances and recordings in collaboration with his brothers Sigiswald and Barthold and with many other leading artists including Gustav Leonhardt, Frans Brüggen and Alfred Deller.The suites for cello solo by J.S. Bach form an integral part of the performing repertoire of Wieland Kuijken as well as the sonatas and variations for cello and piano by L.v. Beethoven with Jan Vermeulen.
