Private flute lessons in Potsdam & Berlin & online

In my perspective teaching how to play an instrument includes the transfer of knowledge, the ability of patience, flexibility and to reveal the “hidden” skills of a player. Besides working on technique, timbre, scales and extending the repertoire, I focus also on conveying the understanding of music and its underlying intention.

All this is important to become a strong self‐confident and self‐aware performer. To me, playing music is about connecting yourself with your instrument, to trust yourself and your skills as well as ‘just’ enjoying to make music.

Since 2012 I have a teaching position for flute at the University of Potsdam.

Soundpainting is the universal multidisciplinary live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual Artists. Presently (2021) the language comprises more than 1500 gestures that are signed by the Soundpainter (composer) to indicate the type of material desired of the performers. The creation of the composition is realized, by the Soundpainter, through the parameters of each set of signed gestures. The Soundpainting language was created by Walter Thompson in Woodstock, New York in 1974.
