Hi! I’m Sebastian, violist and violin/viola teacher in Basel. On this page you will find information about me and my portfolio.

to perform

Having a diverse field of musical activities is an intrinsic need for me and a defining trait of my work. Contemporary music plays an Important role in my playing in the “Tonholz” trio, the Basel-based ensemble “False Relations” and the Basel Sinfonietta. With the string trio “TreCorde Basel” we cover the entire spectrum from baroque to modern.
Please find my next performance dates on my Facebook Page.

to pass on

I offer private violin and viola lessons in my studio in Basel. Working with pupils of all age groups and skill level, I strive to create a professional and comfortable teaching atmosphere. Whether it’s your first contact with the instrument, re-entry or intensive coaching, your long-term progress and your music making are our goal.


Growing up in Weil am Rhein in the Basel area, the violin had been my dearest hobby, and I took lessons with renowned teachers in the region.

I received my professional education as violist with Geneviève Strosser in Basel, as well as in Bern with Patrick Jüdt. Master classes with Hartmut Rohde and Thomas Selditz inspired me further. The diploma from Basel (Master Music Pedagogy) and from Bern (Master Musical Performance) attest to my qualification as a teacher and professional musician.

I gained orchestra experience as an intern in the Basel Symphony Orchestra, as well as being a tutti-member in the Basel Sinfonietta.
In addition to my private teaching, I’m a regular substitute teacher in the Basel Musikakademie.
