My earliest childhood was always surrounded
by music. My mother who was a music teacher
and head of a Beethoven society sent me to
music school for my piano lessons.
When I was 8 I found a diatonic harmonica
under the Christmas tree and I started to play
immediately. I only had troubles with the
„Blue Danube Waltz“ and so my parents bought
me a chromatic harmonica for my 10th Birthday.
I was so happy with that instrument that I never
played on a diatonic harmonica again.
Through the years I took lessons in Jazz piano, singing, percussions and
trumpet but for me it was quite clear that the harmonica was my instrument.
After graduation day I was a student of musicology and philsophy but then
all I aimed for was to play harmonica, teach harmonica,
harmonica and to make the harmonica popular again.
I believe to be on the right track to give this smallest concert instrument
in the world a new chance.
