As the host of this website, I would like to briefly introduce myself: My name is Dirk Ettelt, I was born in 1984 in the city of Gelsenkirchen (D). Since I took my first piano lessons at the age of 10, I couldn't take my hands off these black and white keys. At the age of 14, I also started to write down my piano compositions. I pursued this habit until I graduated from university in the field of microsystems technology. During this period, I have recorded 7 albums. Many of the compositions are written for solo piano, while others are short pieces for orchestra in the style of film music. For professional reasons, I had to take a break from making music and composing right after the release of my 7th album "Outside". In 2014, I resumed my musical activities parallel to my every-day job as engineer. Since then, I mainly focus on composing short pieces for solo piano.
Creative audio studio arose by my activity as pianist and composer. My purpose is to offer you what a musician’s and a pianist’s heart is passionate about.
Amongst others, I offer you a selection of recordings and music videos of my compositions. I also invite you to look at my sheet music and different albums in my online shop. Perhaps you’ll find
a music gift right here for an urgent matter? Or you are interested in new piano challenges for yourself? Don’t hesitate, have a look!
I wish you you a pleasant musical experience on my website!
