Peter Schindler, born in 1960, is a composer, pianist, organist, author and producer. He studied school music, composition and organ, as well as jazz and popular music at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart. Part of his compositional output includes lieder, sing-spiele, and musicals for children and youths. His special motto for this: “For all children under 100!” But also to present old children’s songs in new arrangements is of special interest for him. Why shouldn’t the cuckoo and the donkey dance the cha cha, or grandmother rock in the henhouse?
