About Us

Klangfarbe Music Publishing Company and Klangfarbe Music School were founded in 1996 by certified music pedagogues Beate Hassinger and Achim Kohl.

Our publishing program includes sheet music for beginning and advanced guitar players as well as, more recently, for jazz guitar, electric guitar, electric bass guitar, recorder, piano and drums.

In 2002, we launched our online Klangfarbe Sheet Music Shop. As of December 2013, it is possible to purchase individual pieces of music digitally as pdf with mp3. For this purpose, we have established a special sheet music download area.

Our goal is to publish sheet music that is equally pleasing to the eye and to the ear and that encourages learners to master new techniques or to perfect existing skills. In doing so, we put the greatest emphasis on a clearly structured and easy-to-read layout.

It is our concern to constantly improve our editions and to add new ones that have been inspired by comments from teachers and students alike. As a small, practice-oriented publishing company, we greatly appreciate any kind of feedback, so please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.

Above all: enjoy the music!

Beate Hassinger & Achim Kohl
