Never stop learning

because life never stops teaching

Ernst Renner

Music Teacher – Web Designer – Programmer

Hello and welcome to, my virtual playground where I post information about me, some of the things I have done so far, and exciting projects I am associated with.

Music Teacher

My music career began in Austria and continued after my immigration to Canada. Upon arriving in Canada, I worked as a music teacher and lounge pianist. Two years later, I joined a traveling band and spent the next four years on the road. During this time, I saw a lot of Canada and met some amazing people from whom I have learned a lot.

Composer Arranger

I had the privilege of working on countless music projects and spent a lot of time in the recording studio laying down more tracks then I can remember. I’ve recorded radio commercials, played piano for a Sheraton hotel promo video and over the years, put together a nice portfolio of my work.
Many of my compositions are perfect for commercials and licensing fees are only CAN $250. If you want to avoid copyright issues and own all assets for your ads then tell me about your project

One of the CD’s that I have helped produce states this about me on the inner sleeve:

“Finally, heartfelt gratitude goes to Ernst, whose imagination and dedication turned these songs from mere dreams to reality”.

Web Designer

I am a BCIT educated web designer and computer aided design technology specialist. Check out my linked-in profile for more information about my professional background and experience.
When I am not busy with graphics design or 3D printing, I develop, tweak and update websites for clients in the US, Canada and Austria.

I specialize in designing custom WordPress themes for professionals who don’t want to use free templates that link back to the theme creators own website. If you want to own your theme and artwork then let’s talk about your website and how to improve it

Covid19 has wrecked havoc and many companies are scrambling to revise their online strategy so that they don’t fall behind the competition. If you need help with configuring a web server or creating and updating web content then feel free to contact me for rates and times of availability

PHP & MySQL, Python, Ruby & Rails, JavaScript

From 2009 to 2011, I have authored 10 music education apps for young children. They were available on iTunes, Google Play and the Microsoft Store. After many upgrades, my business partner David and I have decided to host the apps on our own cloud server and build an online learning community for it under the “Little Composers” brand.
If you are the parent of a gifted child that is still at the pre-reading stage, then check out NOAH which teaches children how to compose music. Right now, I am working on a complete rewrite of the Little Composers website because existing learning management systems (LMS) need to much work in order to function as I envision the music school of tomorrow

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.

That’s me in a nutshell.
