Before taking up his current positions in the UK (Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire), Sebastian Müller served on the violin faculty of the Hanover Music Conservatoire, Germany.
Müller has brought over 70 students into the profession, many of whom play in Europe’s major orchestras or have won national competitions, grants and scholarships. He is widely recognised for achieving technical excellence with his students, his teaching being rooted in concepts of physical economy in combination with elements of the great Galamian tradition of violin playing. He collaborates with scientists and practitioners in the fields of psychology and movement science and has filed a patent application on a method of establishing an individual optimal static concept of the violin hold/posture.
Müller trained with P. Zukerman, R. Capuçon, S. Picard and D. Hahn and studied at the Berlin (Hanns Eisler), Amsterdam and Hanover Conservatoires, as well as the Guildhall School of Music and Drama,London, where he was awarded an artist fellowship upon his graduation. His extensive performance career has seen him feature as soloist with the major violin concerto – and core recital repertoire throughout Europe, USA, Latin America and Russia. He has acted as principal leader and soloist of the German String Orchestra and worked with the London Symphony Orchestra and Britten Sinfonia.
He plays on a violin by Peter Greiner.
