Musical background
At the age of five or six my parents kinda forced me to participate in flute and glockenspiel lessons. Two years later, I began with lessons in French horn. From 1995 on, I was member of the Brass Band Wangen. A little later I continued with it in Lindau which even took me to Sweden to play some concerts.
At the age of 15, I entered the local Brass Band Opfenbach.

In the year 2001, a friend of mine was looking after a bass player for his new band. My Job! Just bought a bass guitar, an amp, a self-teaching book and started learning to play the bass. Additionally I took some lessons. Then I joined a band called "Against" that made some cover rock stuff. In 2009, "Against" split up.

Since 2008 I'm playing the bass in the cover band "Crash".
