The Beginning

From an early age, Timo Jaeger learnt already how to express himself by playing instruments.
At the age of five he started taking drum lessons, inspired by his father – who is also a musician –  he got lessons for guitar and at the age of 9 also for piano.  He discovered improvisation and composition with great interest at an early age and so it happend quite fast that the piano became his main instrument.

Fascinated by the sounds of video games and movies, he interpreted his favourite themes with the piano in his own way and began to become familiar with different composition techniques.

From the world of video games he is inspired by Japanese composers (e.g. Nobuo Uematsu, Koji Kondo and Yoko Shimomura). When it comes to film music, his great idols are western musicians and composers (e.g. John Williams, Howard Shore and Hans Zimmer).

Study

In 2011 and 2012 Timo Jaeger won the German Rock and Pop Prize as „Best Keyboarder“ and „Best Instrumentalist“ – a great accomplishment that encouraged him to devote himself to the music he loved and to start a professional career by studying pop music design at the well-known  Pop Akademie Baden-Württemberg Mannheim starting in 2013.

During his studies he worked with interesting and experienced musicians from all over the world and was taught by well-known musicians and professors of Germany. In the beginning, he focused mainly on piano and composition, until he discovered his new passion which allowed him more creative freedom to evolve: producing.

Professional Practice

2015 Timo Jaeger completed a three-month internship at Naidoo Herberger Production, which was intellectually as formative as his work with German music giants like Xavier Naidoo, Die Söhne Mannheims and Grosch’s Eleven. A time, where he also gained practical skills in the field of TV music (e.g. Sing mein Song).

He went on to another three-month internship at klangzeuger studio ma, under the management of Philippe van Eecke, which allowed him to gather more experience and know-how for  working in the studio.

Since then, his experience is growing along with his demand and understanding of high quality productions. He never stops setting ambitious standards to challenge himself and to widen his musical horizon. With sensitivity and openness, he develops musical worlds of different styles allowing the listener to enter new spheres.
