Andreas Stier ( Germany )

 Andreas Stier was born in Hannover(Germany) in 1952. Through his very music-loving family he received many kinds of inspirations from early childhood, piano music, chamber music, especially vocal music. Wherever he studied, in Germany, Korea, Taiwan, he joined choirs, school orchestras (violin), and was engaged in chamber music or vocal accompaniment (piano).

           In spring 1983 he graduated from Hamburg University majoring in Sinology with a Master of Arts degree.

           In summer 1983 he graduated from  HfMT (University for Music and Theatre) Hamburg, majoring in piano with the teacher’s diploma. 

           In autumn 1983 he began to teach as a professor for Piano at the HfMT Hamburg.

Within 38 years of working at the HfMT, he also taught many students from China, Korea and Taiwan, trying to bring them closer to the mentality of western music and composers. 

During the last eight years, he also taught Japanese students at a piano academy in Hamburg.

           Since 1978 Andreas Stier has been teaching private students, some of them preparing for the entrance examination to the Music University, others participating in music competitions. He has been a jury member of the official German music youth competition “Jugend Musiziert” for solo piano and piano chamber music for more than three decades. 

For Andreas Stier playing music has always been a means of communication and a wonderful chance to understand and overcome cultural distances. And so he is engaged in talking about classical music in his musical internet channel as Teacher Andy.
