"The lessons with Berthold Föger have had a significant impact on my own musical and pedagogical career. With his infectious enthusiasm, he was always able to convey new ideas to me and always flexibly adapted to my individual problems, always in a relaxed but at the same time focused atmosphere.
I now see Berthold Föger's lessons as a model for my own lessons, and can highly recommend him to anyone who wants to develop further on the piano and enjoys playing the piano!"
