Background and Experience
In 1988, Johannes discovered and developed his unique style of whistling to classical and/or popular music. He also discovered,
but not yet developed (for reasons of priority), his latent potential as a composer. His repertoire comprises more than twenty-eight
hours, stretching from classical composers, such as tunes from Suppe, Rossini, Mozart, Brahms and Schumann to contemporary
musical works and interpretations by musicians, such as Liberace, Cleyderman, Wunderlich, Bota, Piacentino etc.
Johannes' repertoire even includes traditional ethnic music, such as Italian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Russian gypsy
tunes and may be extended to suit your specific requirements.

During many years of public performances at the famous Sydney Opera House Johannes attracted and motivated lots of young people
from all over the world, eager discover their own unique abilities and talents. Thanks to his own personal development Johannes
was able to convey his philosophical advice and they in turn encouraged Johannes to detail his insight in writing. The initial
problem was, that Johannes never wrote a book in English language, yet finally, after some practice he managed to write his
first book, titled: 'A Guide to... Personal Contentment'. It is now available (at www.lulu.com). Please enter the book's title
into Lulu's search box and then peruse its ten page Preview.
At this very moment Johannes is busy writing a couple more philosophical books/ guides, titled "Grandpa's Insight";
a practical self-tutor for young people, who thus far, only enjoyed philosophical guidance from their peers, from googling
the Internet, rock music lyrics etc. and miss or resent the philosophical guidance of their parents and grandparents.
