Jan started playing piano at age of four, and two years later the violin was added to his musical education. Growing up in an artistic family (composers, actors and opera singers), Jan went on to earn a Master Degree in Violin at the University of Music, Drama and Media Hanover.
There he studied under Prof. Krzysztof Wegrzyn (former concert master of the State Opera Hanover and founder of the "International Joseph Joachim Violin Competition") and Prof. Jutta Rübenacker-Müller (herself a student of Nathan Milstein).
Furthermore, he participated in several master classes, such as that of Tomasz Tomaszewski (concert master of Deutsche Oper Berlin), Marina Jaschwili (Moscow Conservatory) and Claude Lelong (Ecole Normal De Musique de Paris).

Beside national and international performances as soloist as well as chamber musician in various countries (including Germany, Norway, West Africa, Japan and Poland), Jan played for years as a first section violinist in well known orchestras, such as the NDR Radio Philharmonic, the Philharmonic State Orchestra of Bremen and the European Philharmonic Orchestra.

During his whole career, Jan has been a teacher. For more than 15 years he taught private pupils as well as academy/music school students of all ages and various nationalities. He prepared violin students successfully for entrance examinations at music conservatories, and his deep knowledge combined with a warm, motivating teaching style makes studying fun and enjoyable.
