What and how I would like to teach you

Teaching the recorder has become a great passion for me. To share my love for the music and the recorder is one of the main reasons why I have been doing this for more than 18 years. I can ensure you, that I use the compilation of the best methods I‘ve seen along this long journey of my own learning process. 

Starting with small kids who love to learn through games, my main goal is to open for them a door to this amazing musical world. What is very important is to teach them to make music with joy and it should remain like this forever. 

Teaching students who are already on a path leading to be professionals, I concentrate on topics like good practising habits, secure technique, rich and open sound and musical expression.

Working with recorder teachers who still want to learn and improve, I mainly bring a new inspiration and freshness to their own methods.

Each level has its own specifications and the variety of students makes this work very colorful for me. 

"Why I love to teach?
It‘s one of many ways  to share my love for the music.

We recorder players and teachers are very lucky nowadays. We have such an enormous materials of suitable music pieces both historical and contemporary music for recorders. Furthermore, everything is so easy to access. We have now modern textbooks for kids, inspiring recordings of renowned recorder players and beautiful instruments with good sound. These materials gives us a lot of possibilities. Together we can start to explore a recorder world using modern tools. Recently, using the delay effect has become my interest together with minimalistic improvisation. Additionally, improvisation is part of my personal teaching speciality which I love to both perform and teach.

and I like to teach this
