"Lars‘ enormous competence and reassuring nature gave me the courage to change my embouchure after 30 years of being a professional brass player. The result is without exaggeration a technical rebirth which gives me the ability to play things I hardly was able to play ever before – and I can feel that it’s still getting better each day. I wish every colleague to experience this motivation: playing and practising is more fun than ever before. I hardly wanna put my instrument away. Plus I have the certainty to be in the best hands possible and to be able to get profound advice at any time. Thank you, Lars!"Christophe Schweizer (Basstrombone/Tuba The Lion King, Hamburg – freelancer, ex Mingus Big Band, George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band)
