I see it, musicians are a lot like doctors - people come to a concert
to be treated by the music."

Ernst Bier studied drums with Billy Brooks, Charlie Persip, Vernell
Fournier, and Elvin Jones. He lived and worked in New
York City from 1982 through 1987. After his return to Germany he
lived first near Cologne, and later in Berlin, where he leads a continually
running series of jazz workshops. The list of musicians with whom
he has worked reads like a "Who's Who" of jazz. With his dedication,
his sensitive playing style, and his constructive approach, he is
a highly valued drummer who is continually in demand.
