Stefan has worked as a conductor in Germany, England and Switzerland and as a respected instrumentalist on both euphonium and percussion has gained widespread experience in the fields of brass,wind band, rock band and symphony orchestras.

Develop

He did this in his home country with Nordbayerische Blaserakademie, the Conservatorio Claudio Monterverdi in Bolzano in Italy with Thomas Doss and at the Hochschule der Kunste Bern in Switzerland.

Stefan regularly participates in further education and masterclasses where he is able to further his conducting learning with many notable European conductorsBrass Band Regensburg
