Who is the Quetschn Academy?

Mag. Thomas Holzer

... the music teacher and multi-instrumentalist! He is a talented singer and no matter if it is a piano, a trombone, a guitar or a trumpet, he plays almost everything that makes music, besides his main instrument, the buttonbox.

Thomas Holzer studied music education and instrumental music at the University of Arts in Graz and currently he is not only an active musician, but also a teacher of music. On the stage, he is also the born entertainer - with music, singing and humor, he knows what is important!

In the bands "Die Wuzis" and "Die Teiflstoana", as well as "Jazzquetschn und Tastenmeißl", he guarantees the best entertainment coupled with musical finesse.

Stefan Kern

... does not only elicit alpine melodies from his buttonbox. From the Oberkrainer over all kinds of Austrian folk music and Bavarian music, the great repertoire of soloist and seminar leader Stefan Kern is never exhausted.

His virtuosity and musicality also confirm the "Staatsmeister" seal of approval as well as the first place at the Styrian Buttonbox Competition in 2011, live on TV.

You can also find Stefan on the internet. Nearly 1000 subscribers and about 850000 views on Youtube show that passion is in the game!

He does never leave the house without his instrument!

Hello Thomas and Stefan, with your learning videos it is a lot easier for me to play "Ziach". I often had problems because I forgot the melody after the lesson. Now I just look at the video as often as I want and everything works. It's so great!

You always reply very quickly and competently to any questions.

I would be happy to meet you in real life.

best regards

Since I have been learning with you, there is a lot of progress; your explanations and exercises are just great.

It is really a great pleasure to learn with you so, and all the pieces are mega super; Something for everyone; A super good selection; Plus the good bass exercises. [...]

All thumbs up for you from Vorarlberg and a very warm THANK YOU !!

Thomas, our student since May 2016

First of all, a huge thank you to both of you. As you teach us the harmonica playing is just great. I learned the "Zillertaler Hochzeitsmarsch" in a few days. But not only that, I can also control the computer through you. You can move mountains. A heartfelt thanks to you. [...]

Thanks again for everything and remain your Eva, who is very proud to have you as a teacher.
