About me

Hans ArnoldI am a musician and composer, mainly playing the drums. Born in the middle – east of Germany, I studied jazz-drums at „ArtEZ hogeschool voor de kunsten Arnhem“ (NL) and at „Hochschule für Musik und Theater  Leipzig“.

There I got lessons especially from Etienne Nillesen, René Creemers, Heinrich Köbberling and piano lessons from Jeroen van Vliet.

Since 2016 I’m based in Leipzig. My current focus is on writing and performing my own original music with HOLZIG and playing drums in the band ELEPHANTS ON TAPE. Besides that I love being an instant composer / improviser with several projects or playing any „fresh and honest“ music in small or large ensembles.
