at HfMDK Frankfurt
Since 2011 I have been teaching my own cello class at the Hochschule für Musik und darstellende Kunst (HfMDK) in Frankfurt, which has now grown and developed into a group of fourteen BA and MA students as well as junior pupils. I place value on a well-founded training, including regular concerts, full class lessons and seminars on topics as stage fright, performance training and bodywork. I also invite everyone interested to visit and listen in my class.
Current projects are for example additional weekend classes on topics such as stage fright, Alexander technique or breathing lessons with renowned guest lecturers. A main emphasis in musical education lays on inspiration that comes from inspirational musical personalities. Therefore we invited Professor Schwab to a master class in 2018 and Daniel Müller-Schott as a guest lecturer in 2019.
2022 Anssi Kartuunen held a three day-masterclass with focus on contemporary repertoire.
2023 Prof. Martin Osten from Santiago de Chile will give a masterclass for my students.
- In 2023 there is an interdisciplinary project with contemporary cello solo pieces and the dance department of HfMDK Frankfurt. The choreographies will be shown in Neue Musik-Nacht at 30.4.2023.
- Team-Teaching-Format “Commit” in Festeburgkirche Frankfurt with the colleagues Angelika Merkle, Stefanie Köhler and Anatol Riemer in different repertory of cello-literature.
