Testimonial from Sarah Abassi:

“Philipp gave me lessons at the Mannheim University of Music in the preparation phase for my final bachelor’s concert. With his many technical exercises and the practise plan that he made for me, he took my game to a new level and enabled me to get a great grade at my graduation concert. Philipps know-how is broad across all genres. With his tips and song examples he not only brought me closer to funk and fusion but also other genres such as samba. He has a very positive character and always seems to be in a good mood My study at the University is now finished, but the lessons with Philipp are far from over. “

Testimonial from Florian Hartz:

“After I have been on the road as a professional musician for a long time, Philipp’s lessons have managed to raise my awareness and my playing to a completely new level within just half a year. With well-thought-out exercises that are adapted to my needs, we have effectively worked on the technical and creative aspects of bass playing and developed them further together. In addition, there was well thought-out repertoire work. Philipp’s input on my own projects in the fields of funk, fusion and rock was always very helpful – You could hear the difference on my recordings! In addition, his remarks on recording and production were very well tailored to my professional practice, so that I just got the urge to actually try out everything myself immediately. Thank you for the hours we spent together and the positive vibes! “
