Solo with Wind Ensemble

Andreas Martin Hofmeir, one of the finest and most versatile instrumentalists of our time, is at home in many different musical genres. The 40-year-old tuba player is a professor at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, was a founding member of the Bavarian cult band LaBrassBanda, and has received numerous awards both as a cabaret artist and a classical tuba player. Hofmeir is a respected soloist and chamber musician, and has been invited to lead master classes and workshops throughout the world. He is also an author and showmaster.

Andreas Martin Hofmeir grew up playing in various brass and wind ensembles, where he discovered his love for the tuba. He still enjoys performing with brass and wind bands and passing on his knowledge to non-professional brass players. He has performed with the Sächsische Bläserphilharmonie, the Deutsche Bläserphilharmonie, the Akademisches Blasorchester München, the Bläserphilharmonie Salzburg, and the Upper Austrian Military Orchestra, as well as with countless local wind bands and music societies.
