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 the exciting projects I am associated with.

Music Teacher

My music career began in Austria and continued after my immigration to Canada. At first I taught music and worked as a lounge pianist on weekends but eventually joined a traveling band. During those years, I saw a lot of Canada and met some really amazing people from whom I have learned a lot.


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, I’ve put together a nice portfolio of my own compositions.
My original audio files are timed for 30 second commercials and start at only CAN $250. Licensing and custom work is also possible plus I can produce radio commercials including voice overs in my studio.

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”.

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 or update websites for clients in the US, Canada and Austria.

Covid19 has wrecked havoc and many companies are scrambling to revise their online strategy so that they don’t fall behind the competition. I am always busy but still have room for one or two projects.

I have authored 10 music education apps for young children which were originally 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 you should check out NOAH which teaches children how to compose music. Right now, I am working on a complete rewrite of the Little Composers website and the new learning management system will come online later this year.

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