Berlin born I fell in love with and began playing the violin around my fifth birthday. Later, I studied music education with Professor Dr Bert Greiner and Professor Kathinka Rebling at the university of Cottbus, BTU.

Since 2004 I have been working as a freelance violinist and teacher of the violin. I participate in recordings, concerts, theatre productions and educational projects as well as being a member of the experimental Barefaced Body Trio recently and formerly being a member of the folk band Na Part


about my lessons

Being able to play music enables people to communicate and interact miraculously without words. To me it is one of the most beautiful languages with which one can express oneself. Like all languages it takes discipline and practice to achieve levels of competence, however it shouldn’t all be about hard work. In my lessons I aim for the student to find the learning of this beautiful language a playful, curious, even indulgent experience.

It’s true that the violin is not the easiest instrument to learn but it rewards the diligent like few other instruments.


My passion is to inspire students to enjoy discovering their own way to be creative and communicate musically with the violin.


I teach all levels from the very beginner through to master classes as well as those in preparation for advanced musical studies.

I have a collection of instruments in various sizes for those who would like a trial lesson. 


Feel free to ask, I'm looking forward to hear from you!
