Franz Braun

From his first homemade drum kit made out of drawers in 1982 to today, a lot has happened. His musical journey began in Münster, where he was taught classical percussion by Theo Hegenkötter and jazz by Wolfgang Eckholt.

The next stop was the music hub of Cologne, where he played in various formations, ranging from classic big band jazz to traditional blues and rock, to improvised and composed music for audiovisual performances.

Therefore he combines mic’d percussion instruments with electronic effects and loops to create unique sound experiences. Besides being a drum instructor, he is also working as a sound engineer. For Franz, drumming is ritual, constant evolution, and direct expression. That’s how he lives and teaches it.

Since 2022, he’s been a permanent member of the thePlanetDrum team.

Teaching languages: English and German
