The author Afra Schranner, born in 1970 in Steinhöring, visited the vocational college for music in Plattling, where she majored in flute, after completing her school leaving certificate. After completing her training there with honours, she studied Early Musical Education and Basic Training from 1990 until 1994 at the Richard-Strauss Conservatory in Munich under Eva-Ruth Kahmann, as well as flute under Elisabeth Weinzierl-Wächter. She lived in Fraistenberg in Bayern and led the music establishment “Papageno Musik Lernen” there from 1990. Ideas and experiences from the author’s 20 years of teaching flowed into the teaching programme. She carried out, tested and optimized all of the lesson plans together with colleagues in numerous children’s groups.
