    For Tabea Zimmermann, an essential part of her involvement with music is working with her students.

    “The constant dialogue with interested young musicians focuses one’s own view. I take great pleasure in working together, where musical instincts are questioned and brought to a conscious level.” It is also important for her to pass on to her students her own experience with the instrument, scores and chamber music partners. “I pay special attention to the merging of musical and interpretive ideas and their technical execution. In doing so, I aim to convey perfection of expression with a wide-ranging awareness of style.”

    Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts

    Tabea Zimmermann’s academic career is closely linked to the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts (HfMDK). After professorships at the Hochschule für Musik Saar and the HfMDK, as well as 20 years at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” Berlin (2002-2023), she returned to the HfMDK Frankfurt as Professor of Viola and Chamber Music for the summer semester of 2023.
