Josef Klaus Schellander, Mag.

Lecturer in Trombone

  • Mirabellplatz 1/IV (Room: A04014)
  • 5020 Salzburg

Klaus Schellander was born in Austria. He studied bass trombone for artistic and teaching purposes at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg and at the University of the Arts in Berlin. He furthered his musical and technical skills in master-classes with Charles Vernon and Edward Kleinhammer (Chicago Symphony Orchestra), Stefan Schulz (Berlin Philharmonic).


Several engagements at the Salzburg Festival with the Salzburg Brass Consort, an ensemble founded by Klaus Schellander, characterize his musical career as well as performances with the Camerata Salzburg, at the Neuschwanstein Musical Theatre and in many national and international ensembles and orchestras. He has also frequently given solo performances at home and abroad.


He took further courses in bio-feedback, the Alexander Technique and autogenic training which contributed to his holistic approach in teaching an instrument. His teaching activities as lecturer in trombone, ensemble playing and brass instrument didactics give him the opportunity to pass on his extensive artistic skills and educational knowledge at the Mozarteum University and at the Musikum in Salzburg. Through his training as a “systemic coach” he stresses the significance of systemic contexts in his professional environment.


Arouse your potential

Coaching for musicians and teachers of musical instruments

How can you recognize that you have achieved what you wish for in life?

Nowadays musicians and teachers of musical instruments are faced with high demands in the spheres of expert knowledge and social competence.

Only those who are moved from the inside are capable of changing the exterior.

Write your own life symphony.


“It is not because it is difficult that we do not dare, but because we do not dare, it is difficult.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca (Roman philosopher)


Systemic coaching serves as a supporting tool in searching for existing but still underused resources. Coaching offers accompaniment and support for musicians and educationalists in a limited period of time in combining professional and life roles.


If stage fright, nervousness before exams, preparing for an audition, professional advancement or change are topics which concern you, then take the following advice: “Be your own life conductor and have the courage to take on responsibility and rise above yourself.” Make use of systemic coaching to support you in finding your own individual successful path.
