Several years of vocal instruction with Claudia Moppert (classical), Xenia Zampieri (modern) und Rhonda Dorsey (modern).
I’ve learned my first chords during my time as a scouts leader; my dear Pa has showed them to me. After that, I’ve let the Guitar sleep, until I’ve discovered songwriting during a four week musical training at Castle Röhrsdorf near Dresden. Norm Strauss and Brian Boy have helped me adding a few more chords to my arsenal and refining my rudmentary play a wee little bit.
Apart from very early, not longer available creations like “I’m riding on my Shetland pony”, I’ve written my first real song in 2004. At Castle Röhrsdorf and under the tutoring of Norm Strauss and Lothar Kosse, I’ve written the two songs that I’ve recorded for my CD „Hier will ich bleiben“, netxt to the covers of my favorite christian songs.
You can book my to play my own songs and covers for concerts of any kind. Just fill out the contact form with your wished, and I will get in touch! I also love to contribute the music for church services, be it a regular service, a confirmation, wedding etc.
Houseconcerts have become quite popular. Meeting with friends, inviting an artist and enjoying a concert in an intimate atmosphere can be a great experience. Next to the Musical part, there is time to chat with the artist, asking questions and exchanging views, a special experience for your friends and neighbours. And I really love to do them!
Do you think about hosting a houseconcert? All you need is a room that seats around 20 people. The house-concert model normally suggests that you ask your guests for a little fee for the artist. Other details can be adapted and discussed. If you are interested, just fill in the contact form, if possible with location and a favorite day if there is one.
My Band: Dwelling Place

Johny Lippuner – Drums/Percussion
Johny Lippuner has been beating the drum early in his life. At first, he chose the cooking tops at home to train his abilities; later, a real drum moved in. A few years later, the experts at Agostini Drum School in Olten and Paris had to bear Johnys noice and bad French. Inspite of that, he was granted with the degree as a drum teacher from Dante Agostini School in 2003.
During the last twenty years, Johny has gathered stage experience in several bands. He feels at home playing funk, disco, gospel, jazz and bigband music, but he also takes part in other projects like musicals, acoustic sets, rockbands and orchestras. He is managing the sound studio so-music and is working as arranger and band leader. Further informations can be gathered at Johny Lippuner’s website.
