Pretty busy at the moment. Lots of teaching as well as many beautiful projects and concerts. Right now we are rehearsing for Mamma Mia!. First show in 2+ weeks 🕺🥳. It’s been a while since I updated my homepage – be sure to follow me on Instagram for constant updates 😉.

Hello with a quick update 🥳.
We played a couple of gigs with the Jakob Zimmermann Trio again, I am involved in three musical theatre pieces right now at the Theater in der Josefstadt and I am playing quite a few Christmas shows. Also, Gert Steinbäcker’s (STS) new album 44 was released a couple of weeks ago that features me on three tracks 💪. Other projects are happening, too 😍.
Besides all that there is lots of teaching and other stuff. Really trying to re-activate my YouTube channel, too, but it seems like one upload per month is the maximum right now. Next year, a couple of more exclusive lessons will launch in my Online School.
Stayed tuned and I wish you all a merry, merry Christmas and a happy new year 🎊 🎄!!

Hello with another update 🤘.
I am very fortunate to be playing lots and lots of gigs right now with many different projects 🥳. Some highlights of the past few weeks would certainly have been all the Mainfelt gigs at some beautiful and incredible festivals, as well as playing with KØLEEN at the Donauinselfest, or our final season of „Vivaldi – Die fünfte Jahreszeit“ at the Vienna Volksoper, besides some exciting jazz gigs and other stuff, too.
Make sure to follow my Instagram for almost daily updates 😉.
Also, I am trying to „reactivate“ my YouTube channel, which has been impossible during the last couple of weeks. I uploaded a video TODAY, though, showing some live footage of Mainfelt at the Alpen Flair 2022 🤘. Make sure to check it out here 🥳.
Right now I am looking forward to some more jazz gigs and the yearly Outreach Music Festival in Schwaz where I will be again performing as well as teaching.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer, too and we’ll hopefully see each other at one of my gigs or workshops 💪.
Take care and cheers,

It’s been a long time since I posted an update here (make sure to follow my Instagram for almost daily updates and news 😉).
I’ve been rather busy with gigs coming back to existence as well as teaching and studio work. Some highlights would have been playing with CLERQ, my new Jazz band Life Aquatic, The Schick Sisters, KØLEEN, sitting in with legendary Austrian band Nockis, touring with Tiktaalik and recording with Christian Kolonovits for Austropop legend Gert Steinbäcker.
There is a lot of stuff coming up. For example finally playing with Mainfelt again 😊. I’ll try to keep you updated 😉.

I had an absolute BLAST joining the South Tyrolean folk rock band MAINFELT and playing a short 3-gig mini tour with them two weeks ago 🥳🤘😎💪!!
I have the huge honor and pleasure of joining them full time for their upcoming gigs – like for example THIS Friday (5th) in Hefenhofen, Switzerland ❤️.
Make sure to catch us live at some point 🙏🤩!!
August 30th 2021
A very busy summer is coming to an end 😎. I had a lot of fun playing „West Side Story“ and „Musicalstars im Steinbruch“, performing and teaching at the Outreach Music Festival 2021, as well as doing many other fun and exciting gigs with lots of amazing people ❤️.
After a short holiday, I will be playing with Jakob Zimmermann Trio in Schwaz (Sep. 15th) and Vienna (Sep. 22nd) and with Christian Kolonovits and a huge and awesome orchestra supporting various Austrian artists at the Donauinselfest 2021 (Sep. 18th) 😎.
Stay tuned 🤘!!

We had a lovely opening night of „West Side Story“ at the world renowned Seefestspiele Mörbisch last week and a couple of more stunning shows since then ❤️. We’ll continue on Thursday 💪. Great fun 😎!!

Thrilled to announce that I will be performing West Side Story at the renowned Seefestspiele Mörbisch this summer 💪🤘. We were going to do it last year but then, well…
Now it’s time 🥳!!
Here is a little snippet of my practice preparations:

Another brand new video hit my YouTube channel, but I don’t want to continue to fill my news section with YouTube links, so here is the general information:
This year (at least for the next couple of months) I will release a new YouTube video EVERY Monday! And again, I won’t post more links here, BUT you can always find the videos under either the media, the online school or the gear section of this homepage (depending on the information).
So stay tuned and have a great week 💪🏻🤘👍!!

Take care and stay healthy!
December 7th 2020
Besides teaching and online work, 2 more exciting projects emerged for the remainder of this year:
Last week we were happy to do a video recording for the Jazzfest München with our Jazz quartet Tiktaalik. It was a lot of fun playing with those guys again, although only for the cameras and the audio/video crew 😉.
This Saturday (December 12th) I am happy to do another streaming gig with the Rens Newland Trio at Reigen club in Vienna. Tune into the livestream at 7pm 🤘!!
November 12th 2020
Just a quick update from my professional life:
Theatres, concert halls, clubs, bars etc. had to close again at the beginning of the month, meaning that they shut us down after only one show of „Vivaldi – Die fünfte Jahreszeit“ at the Vienna Volksoper 😔. Our last (and fourth) season in April was cancelled completely. In this fifth season, we managed to do one show 😂🙈. And that one show will most probably have been my last gig for this year… No more words needed. Luckily, I got a lot of other stuff going on with album recordings, my videos and my students. And a lot of practicing of course. So I am busy as always but of course I miss gigs. So 2021, I am counting on you 😅🤘!!
Take care and stay healthy!
