BIOGRAPHY

At the age of 4, he started playing the Euphonium thanks to his family. That was the very first time Marc became familiar with a mouthpiece. "I remember my grandfather forbid me to play aggressively, he taught me instead to play with a gentle breeze and a warm tone." With that advice he learned very quickly all the positions by himself and started playing invented melodies with variations. Additionally he became quickly familiar with orchestras, given the fact that his mother practiced her excerpts for her master degree in double bass every day. At the age of 10, he also started taking lessons in double bass in the Conservatory in Esch-Sur-Alzette. His second instrument.

After a time he fell in love with the warm but also crystal clear sound of the Trombone and discovered a passion for it.
