Jochen Seggelke

studied the clarinet with Hans Pfeifer in Mannheim and has since played in a considerable number of German orchestras and ensembles (e.g. Concerto Köln, Acamus). In 1995 he finished his training as maker of woodwind instruments and set up his own business, which he merged with Werner Schwenk's company in 1996. He still can't stop making music and his experience as professional clarinettist allows him to relate to customer's wishes particularly well. Meanwhile, he has earned an entry in Germany's “Who's who” and has been on the road as “ambassador for the economic region of Bamberg” since 2005. From time to time he can be spotted sailing.

He also plays the saxophone in smaller and larger ensembles (see www.es-as.de).

After passing his examination for the master craftsman's certificate in Munich he finally ventured into self-employment in 1986. In 1996 he combined his expertise with that of Jochen Seggelke. Meanwhile he enjoyes his pension and spends a lot of time on his e-bike.
