The cellist Andrea Traxler is active as a chamber musician, orchestral musician and teacher and was engaged, among others, in the orchestra of the Vienna State Opera. Concerts with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under G. Dudamel, M. Jansons, C. Thielemann, A. Nelsons, F. Welser-Möst, Z. Mehta, V. Gergiev and many others have taken her to the great concert halls of Europe, America and Asia. In addition to her longstanding participation in the Vienna State Opera Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Vienna Volksoper Symphony Orchestra, she performs as a chamber musician and member of various ensembles.

Andrea Traxler leads a violoncello intensive training class at the Johann Sebastian Bach Music School Vienna (study preparation, support programme in cooperation with the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts). She also holds a teaching position at the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts. During her studies she completed the special module “Music Physiology”, further education and courses of the ÖGfMM (Austrian Society for Musicians’ Medicine) as well as an internship at the Stellenbosch Conservatory (South Africa) with Prof. Dalena Roux (“the body-related work on the instrument”). The cellist completed her studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna and at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne, where she graduated with distinction in 2012 with a concert diploma under Prof. H.C. Schweiker.

The musical work with young people and the goal of forming independent musical personalities – by teaching sound design, body feeling, technique, joy and motivation – is one of the most beautiful challenges.


Course location

The courses for children and their parents have been taking place in the newly designed Horn Campus since 2019. The classrooms and exercise rooms are bright and friendly rooms with comfortable and functional furnishings, there is also enough space for breaks and relaxation times as well as an extensive range of leisure activities.

Daily schedule

Further information


The classes aimed to encourage children’s passion in music and foster their joy in making music. Daily rehearsals, practice and companionship have a positive impact on their ability to strengthen their qualities and musical development. The period of two weeks make sustainable pedagogical effects possible. Lectures share their expertise, but also their great love for music. Lessons, accompaniment and chamber music training will provide participants with new experiences. Parents escort their children and are part of the courses to encourage and support their children best possible at the courses as well as during the year.


In addition to the classes, numerous accompanists will be available to help participants study and prepare for the music programme within the context of the course. The number of lessons goes by the children´s abilities and according to the professors.
