Dr. Dirk Lemmermann has been lecturer at the course for a long time. He leads the "Rotenburger Gitarrenwoche" together with Hans Wilhelm Kaufmann. Dirk Lemmermann studied guitar, music education, germanistic philology, and musicology in Berlin. As guitar player he mainly gave concerts as part of chamber music ensembles ("Team Telemann"). In Berlin, Bremen, Hannover, and Frankfurt he conducted performances of more extensive works for choir and orchestra (cantatas, oratories). As musician and composer of the cabaret "Phrasenmäher" he had numerous tours, radio- and TV-productions. At the moment he teaches music and German at a grammar-school in Offenbach.
At the course he is going to offer single lessons, to lead chamber music groups as well as the guitar orchestra, and - if there might be time – he may offer a choir for interested participants.
But this year unfortunately Dirk cannot participate at our festival due to scheduling reasons. So > Jessica Kaiser sponaneously agreed to fill in for him.
