Steinway-Flügel mit Tasten

For over 30 years I have taught students from beginner levels through to professional, from 6- to 66-year-old, in both piano playing and musical theory.

I have done and will continue to do everything needed to pass my artistic value, individuality, and skills onto you. I strive to achieve the greatest possible individual result, going far beyond the mere teaching of technical-music skills. »Piano coaching« would probably be a more appropriate word for this.

Because… as Vladimir Horrowitz so aptly said:
»Piano playing consists of reason, heart and technical means.
Everything should be equally developed.
Without reason you are a fiasco, without technique an amateur, without heart a machine.

Of course, constant practice must be given an indispensable place in life. Through this, fun and enjoyment will develop in the most diverse of ways, regardless whether it is playing the piano for oneself, for family, for a concert at home or before a larger audience, or for that grand scale concert – such as national (e.g. „Jugend musiziert”/Youth Playing Music) or international competitions.

Additional advantages in accepting my private tutorage:

  • Flexible schedule
  • Sessions not bound to school vacations
  • First class instruments

Beyond the traditional teachings, I can offer song accompaniment, chamber music, and musical theory (e.g. also pop and jazz arrangements) workshops. I also offer targeted preparation for school-of-music admission exams to help round out your teaching experiences.
My main location for instruction is Eltville at the Rhine River (easily reached by public short-distance transport; the studio is five walking miunutes from bus/railway stops). But I am also happy to come to your home - please note that this offer refers to the cities of Wiesbaden and Frankfurt, the districts of Main-Taunus and Upper Taunus. Teaching centres can be found in Hofheim, Eschborn, Kronberg, Königstein, Oberursel and Bad Homburg.
