The profession of a musician was a clear decision for me, because music has influenced all phases in my life. What was once a childhood hobby, is now at the same time my profession, my work and my passion. In my work, I aim to discover that which is essential in music. The emotions and the inspiration behind the notes function as a compass on this journey.
In this homepage, I present an overview of my experience as a choral conductor, composer and teacher of choral conducting so far. My wish is to be able to expand these experiences in my new home country, Germany.
