Vorberg 561
Ramsau am Dachstein,

I began to play the piano at the age of 10 and had 10 year's instruction. After this, I wanted to study music but within a short time I completely decided against it. I did not want to turn my hobby into a profession. At the time, whilst practising hard at pieces, I noticed that I also enjoyed inventing my own music and wanted to write it down. Thus I came to composing. I have never studied music or been active as a musician. I have given minor performances, accompanied in ballet school, played the organ in church and sung in many choirs over several years. However, music remains a hobby for me. Everything that I know today about music and composing I taught myself. I trained my musical knowledge through hear of much music, reading many scores and the instrumentation with the probably best theoretical work of instrumentation in this world. I would therefore like to say that I am not a professional musician or composer (as occasionally described by some people).
You can take also a look to my youtube page to see and hear more music.
You can find some more music (arrangements and unfinished scores) here and here.
