The guy behind Music Instructor is Holger Trance (born August 10, 1972) who goes by nick name: Holly. He was born in a small German town Winnenden. His life is an neverending moving from one place to another. He changed about twenty times his wallpapers and schools. The reason for this lifestyle is his father Robert who's profession caused often moving to different cities. Finally he ended up in the town of his dream: Berlin.
His artistic skill are developing in Leipzig (Germany), where he studies for last five years in prestigious Mendelssohn Bartholdy School of Music and Theatre. From the very beginning he wanted to become an serious artist therefore very carefully he took singing classes as well as pronunciation and acting classes. A big help was Prince Wolfgang "Wolke" Lenk who gave him lessons of "phrase singing" for one semester. As I said he always wanted to be musician. For his 15th birthday his sister gave him a guitar. From that moment the music became life for Holly. He also learnt by himself how to play on keyboard. He started working hard, and based on his present achievements, we know he really did a good job. Few years later he established a group called "Believe In Spring", however without major success. As a matter of fact this group almost signed profitable contract, unfortunately the label went banckrupt, before the contract was signeds. It didn't make Holly stop from moving forward. Meanwhile, he was equipping his studio with new instruments, was constantly making new demos and sending them to many labels. His version of Ultravox's "Hymn" ended up in the label he is presently recording. His present producers: Triple-M Music loved that remake and decided to help Holly in his carrier. They knew that "Hymn" is a candidate for a Hit and they were far from being wrong. "Hymn" was first officially released track by Music Instructor and became an immediate success in 1995. Relationship between Holly and his producers is very fruitful and brought new hits. Second single "Hands In The Air" is now a huge Hit. More recently Holly released his first album entitled: The World of Music Instructor with his newest single "Dream A Little Dream". Now everybody wants him and a mysterious Music Instructor (A Tin Man - Robot reminding Wizard of Oz) whos identity is still the secret, to play for them and give authographs..

|Review||First single released in 1995 "Hymn" was a very popular track all over the Europe featured later in many European dance compilations. This particular song was an "instruction" how to make a nice dance track. It begun with spoken words: Ladies and Gentlemen. We would like to show you how to make a hit record. And as a matter of fact they did show. "Hymn" is very nice Hi-Energy/Techno track originally performed by ULTRAVOX and quite recently introduced also by Italian group Cabballero. Next hit by this group "Hands In The Air" released in 1996 instructs this time how to have a party. Another hit that has been featured in various compilations i.e FORMEL EINS (Formula One) - Hit Explosion.|
Practically each song in this album starts by spoken words by Music Instructor. You learn about him in fifth track in this album "Everybody". He says: Most people think that robots have no feelings, but that's not true. I'm a machine but sometimes I feel lonely too, because everybody needs somebody to love. Well... in the album you will learn not only how to make a good records and have a good party but also how to dance (track - 7 "Dance") how to join unity of the party people of many nations (track - 8 "Celebration") what to do if you feel alone (track -9 "If You Feel Alone"). In another very cute RMB-like track "Dream A Little Dream" Music Instructor says: We could have Paradise on Earth if we believe in a future, so let the children of the world change the things around us. I think this message of PEACE and FREEDOM is for ALL OF US. Entire album is a very good production in HI-ENERGY/TECHNO style. It is not a heavy TECHNO but very dancable. Good work with sequencers, percussion instruments, drums and definately great sequence melodies. For all of you who like such combination the album will bring pleasure to dance.
