Trumpet Studies

The study of trumpet at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" is intense and multifacetted. Alongside German orchestral style and Solo-Repertoire students attain important knowledge through experiences with ensemble and chamber music – These include new music, where they are involved with important Literatur und esthetic directions of the 20th and 21st centuries, natural trumpet in the music of the 17th and 18th centuries, stilistics from Jazz and pop music forms and issues of pedagogics and methodology.

During their studies students have the opportunity to make contacts to Berlins cultural institutions (3 opera houses, 4 symphony orchestras, new music and improvisation ensemble, etc), to enjoy the exciting concert life of the German capital, and sometimes  work as extra players in some of the Berlin orchestras. After their studies they are active in orchestras, various ensembles, as teachers and as soloists.

In addition to their lessons with me many students also have regular lessons with Felix Wilde from the Staatskapelle Berlin. Students also regularly recieve lessons in orchestral excerpts and audition training. For this we have had outstanding partners from the many Berlin orchestras. At the moment Matthias Kühnle from the Deutsches Sinfonie-Orchester teaches orchestral exceprts. For  audition training we also frequently invite other leading orchestral players as guests.

School news:

Of course, the last and the coming semester take place under the influence of the Corona pandemic. Unfortunately this has lead to  limitaions, especially of the possibilites for public concerts and ensemble playing. Nevertheless the cooperation and collaboration within the trumpet class are working excellently, and many students have found creative solutions for the challenges these times present.

Despite the crisis we managed to put together a class concert on June 25th. Six students in Berlin played live and several others were streamed in from abroad. One special appearance came from Jaeho Kwak, who organized found a pianist and organized a room and performed Desenclos Incantation, Threne et Danse – streamed live to us from Seoul, Korea at midnight (Korean time)!

Students – here you can find information about current and past students of the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler". In addition, in our Portraits we introduce some present and former students more extensively and tell about their lives with music, the trumpet and more.

Musikgymnasium – The Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" is also responsible for the musikal education at the Musikgymnasium Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (high school). The pupils there are taught by Sören Linke (Konzerthausorchester) and Jonathan Bucka (Staatsoper Berlin) and also receive additional masterclasses and individual instruction from me.
