Since october 2015 I am teaching at " Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover
My interview in the german drum magazine " drums & percussion " october/december 2013
October 2013 :
Happy to announce my new endorsements with C&C drums
……and Paiste Cymbals
And two more nominations this year!
For best Band and best CD
both with Bluesoul! YEAH
I am really proud that I was nominated for the GERMAN BLUES AWARD in the category Drums & Percussion.
Around 150 promoters, journalists and people from the music industry voted for me.
What they didn't know is, that I am Austrian and so I was not allowed to get the award.
Still I appreciate this nomination and consider it a big honor.
* I am looking forward to play a few gigs with Dick Brave and my friends from the Backbeats,in June.
* Also I am proud to announce, that there wiil be an article in the german Drums & Percussion Magazine this summer.
With my Band Bluesoul we managed to reach as first european Band ever,the final of the IBC in Memphis this year......and we won the second price!
As Coach & Co-Producer:
"Bernhard has been of great help writing and arranging our songs. He had a major impact making our music sound as it does today. Whether reducing a beat to it's essence, or adjusting some harmonies,his expertise and experience have led us on the right track."
2013 I will be expanding my work,...besides playing a lot of gigs I will spent some time focussing on the music industry
through my experience as a musician in many different circumstances ( teaching/coaching/counseling/...)
I will try to pass on this knowledge.
Do you need help in choosing the right sounds and equipment?
How can I push my Band and make it sound better?
Do you need some special band for some special event?
How do I teach properly and efficiently ?
Do you need some drum-tracks for Demos or Cd's?
Are you searching for some new concepts in your music school?
....and much more....
Of course I will keep on playing live as much as possible
My latest projects are : The Tommy Schneller Band - Winner of the German "Schallplattenpreis" and Blues Challenge 2012 -
Michael van Merwijk & Bluesoul - Winner of the German Blues Challenge 2011 -
From Memphis to Motown
