Jeannine Läuffer (*1996) is studying piano (Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy) with Benjamin Moser and Stefan Wirth and contemporary composition (minor) with Dieter Ammann at the Lucerne School of Music (HSLU - Musik).
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in contemporary composition from the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and has recently studied with several composers such as Mathias Steinauer, Felix Baumann and Benjamin Lang and piano (minor) with Adalbert Roetschi and Tamriko Kordzaia.
She took her first piano lessons at the age of eight and was a participant of a program supporting talented musicians of the high schools in the canton of Aargau, in order to follow her versatile musical interests. At the age of 16 she learned, in addition, to compose and to play the harp. Furthermore, Jeannine is an enthusiastic choir singer.
Important impulses were given by many composers such as Bettina Skrzypczak, Benjamin Lang, Mathias Steinauer, Felix Baumann, Beat Fehlmann, Martin Derungs, Ondřej Adámek, Simon Steen-Andersen and pianists such as Florian Hoelscher, Markus Becker, Einav Yarden, Adalbert Roetschi, Judith Flury, Tamriko Kordzaia and Hans-Jürg Strub.
Jeannine has won several prizes at national composition competitions (et al. Finale SJMW) and received requests for orchestra and diverse ensembles. Within the framework of the "Aargauer Talente 2015" CD recording, she was able to play her piano composition "Koyaanisqatsi Op. 4a".
Her music is frequently played in Switzerland and abroad. As a pianist she performs in concerts, as a solo performer as well as in chamber music ensembles.
Next to her musical studies Jeannine is currently teaching piano at the "Musikschule Staufen" in the canton of Aargau and is giving private lessons as well.
