What can a contemporary composer write for the children? Educational and also playful music at very easy levels (children between 6 to 10 years old) often fell into the boring music exercise. Whereas composers with ambition try to add some compositionally interesting elements, the music often becomes too difficult for the children. Parents even say that atonal/noisy music is not suitable for children and our children should only play beautiful music! For my colleague, Gerhard Scherer-Rügert, it is not a problem. His aim is to teach children and young people to play music in all genres without compromise.

“Maths lesson for children” is often played but so far no parents have complained.
