Tim Allhoff, born in Augsburg in 1970, already started playing piano – self-taught – as a child, had the benefit of classical piano lessons later and then studied jazz piano at the Richard-Strauss Conservatory in Munich. He graduated with "magna cum laude" in 2007. The fact that he is a sideman much in demand in Germany goes without saying. But he does not limit himself to that, because he is much too busy, curious and ambitious. On one hand, he works as director of music at Ingolstadt Theater, and on the other hand he has his own trio, which has been in existence for about two years.
