He received his Ph.D. in musicology after completing a degree in music education (both from the School of Music and Drama in Hanover, Germany). During an extended post-doctoral stay with K. Anders Ericsson in the psychology department of the Florida State University, Tallahassee, he grew especially interested in questions on skill acquisition and expertise.
