I have been performing regularly as a professional bassist on national and international stages for over 25 years.
For 10 of those years I lived in London as a session bassist, playing with many renowned bands in a broad variety of styles at festivals, on tours and in the studio.
I received my musical education at the American Institute of Music in Vienna and, thanks to a performance scholarship, at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. In the process I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience, which I love to share with my students!
The enjoyment of making music is always the first priority!
