Klaus Schellander was born in Austria and studied bass trombone for artistic and teaching purposes at the Mozarteum University Salzburg and at the University of the Arts in Berlin. He took part in master classes with Charles Vernon, Edward Kleinhammer and Stefan Schulz. 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. He has been teaching trombone, ensemble playing and brass didactics at the Mozarteum University Salzburg since 1990 and at the Salzburg Musikum since 1989.
