Multi award winning musician, arranger and composer Tini was inspired to start playing saxophone after falling in love with Tony Curtis in ‘Some Like It Hot’’ when she was just 13.

Initially interested in tenor sax, she switched to baritone at the age of 15. Three years later after discovering that for her,  ‘low’ wasn’t ‘low’ enough, she added bass clarinet to her studies. Collaborations have ranged from playing with The Metropole Orchestra, Brussels Jazz Orchestra  and NDR BigBand to performing with Dr John at North Sea Jazz and Montreux Jazz Festival.

Notable achievements have been recording  her own award winning compositions with The Metropole Orchestra and acting as Musical Director for the German Society for Music in Medicine and Research.
