The youngest of five brothers and sisters Jonas (*1990) grew up in the Swabian village Oberdorf am Ipf and took his first trombone lessons at the age of nine. His brother was his teacher back then.
Jonas first played in the trombone choir of Nördlingen, until his path lead him to the Junge Philharmonie Ostwürttemberg, the Regional Youth Orchestra Baden-Württemberg and finally to the National Youth Orchestra. Directly after playing in the National Youth Orchestra Jonas became bass trombonist with the Nürnberger Symphoniker.
In 2008 Jonas started his studies as pre-student at HfM Würzburg with Lothar Schmitt and a year later began regular studies, which he completed in 2014. After that Jonas moved to Universität der Künste Berlin in order to start a Master programme with Prof. Stefan Schulz.
As a founding member Jonas has been with Salaputia Brass Connection since 2011.
