Hylke Banning studied electrical engineering at the University of Twente and graduated in 1992. His musical engagement started at the age of six when he took organ lessons with Dirk S. Donker. During his studies at the university, he discovered the bells of the campus carillon. He studied carillon for nine years with Karel Borghuis, the carillonneur of Oldenzaal. In 1992 he succeeded his teacher as city carillonneur. He also studied for several years carillon at the Netherlands Carillon School in Amersfoort with Arie Abbenes, city carillonneur of Utrecht, Eindhoven, and Asten. Hylke Banning won several first prizes during carillon contests. From 1994 until 2000 he was secretary of the board of the Dutch Carillon Society (NKV) and also for almost ten years a member of the editorial committee of Klok en Klepel, the magazine of the NKV.
