His studies were supported by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and, in the concert exam, by a postgraduate scholarship from the State of Berlin.

In addition to concerts as a soloist, his passion for the string quartet led to several competition successes and chamber music studies with Prof. Eberhard Feltz at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin.
