Music Teacher

Music teacher, Edmonton 2003

As a professional musician with roots in Austria and Canada, I have had the privilege of experiencing diverse cultures and perspectives that continue to inspire me in my creative endeavors. After starting out as a music teacher and lounge pianist upon arriving in Canada, I joined a traveling band and spent several years on the road, seeing much of this great country while also learning from some truly remarkable individuals along the way. However, like many musicians before me, I eventually decided to take a step back from the fast-paced life of touring and instead focus on more personal music projects that continue to challenge and inspire me to this day.

Composer Arranger

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”.

Recording on a commercial sound track in 2020

As a professional musician with over four decades of experience in the industry, I have had the privilege of working on countless music projects across various genres and styles – from recording radio commercials to playing piano for promotional videos at luxury hotels like the Sheraton Cavalier. Throughout my career, I have also amassed a sizable portfolio of my work that includes both original compositions as well as cover songs tailored specifically for commercial use.
In addition to my extensive experience in the field, I also hold several music certifications and continue to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies within the music world. This allows me to offer a unique blend of creativity, technical expertise, and professionalism that is sure to bring any project I am involved in to new heights of success.
If you have an upcoming advertising campaign or other commercial venture that requires high-quality musical accompaniment, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly so we can discuss your specific needs and goals in more detail.

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

Me, Chris and Rob, IBM store in Edmonton, 2001

In the late 1990s, I took a break from my career in music teaching and went to work for IBM which laid the foundation for all the software development that followed. After moving to Vancouver and enrolling at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), I developed 10 music apps for children which were available on iTunes, Google Play, and Microsoft Store.
Eventually, I decided to host my apps on my own server and build an online learning community around them under the “Little Composers” brand. If you are the parent of a gifted child who is still at the pre-reading stage, then check out the free NOAH app which uses animals instead of notes to teach 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 too much work to function as I envision the music school of tomorrow.

That’s me in a nutshell.
