Frank Bernaerts (b: 28.02.1967 in Willebroek , Belgium ) is a Belgian composer, conductor and musician .

At the age of eight he began his music studies at the Municipal Music Academy in Willebroek in the subjects of sheet music, music history and piano. Studies for cornet were with Frans Violet and piano with Christa Steenhuyse-Vandevelde and William Peeters followed. He also played in the Brass Band Willebroek since its foundation in 1979 to 1986. There he continued his education, and his newly composed works were first performed by the band.

In 1981, he studied privately with Jan Seger's harmony theory and then in 1985 he started studying music at the Conservatory in Mechelen , Belgium. In 1986, he moved to the music education department at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven , where he studied composition , harmony and music theory. In the same year he won the international composition competition Flores luventutis in Ghent, with the wind orchestral work Dreaming . After completing his studies, he founded his own music publisher Bernaerts Music , in which he published numerous arrangements of popular works for wind orchestra. He also uses the pseudonym of Jan van Kraeyonck.
