The Kufstein regional music school (LMS) is one of the most successful talent centres for young musicians in Tyrol. Under the direction of music teacher Johann Otter, the Schoolphonics impress with original compositions and current cover hits. Since 2010, LMS Kufstein has offered jazz, pop and rock as an additional subject, with the project “Schoolphonics”. Here music students have the opportunity to creatively explore pop music in a professional environment. They can work in various formations, from singer-songwriter to show band, exploring the wide spectrum and range of genres found in popular music, as well as present their skills in a variety of ambitious projects and events. This includes participating in the biggest Austrian band contest “Podium Jazz Pop Rock”, which takes place every 2 years, where the young musicians always find great success, in 2010 winning the national prize in the category Pop, Rock Unplugged.
