The Hochschule für Musik Freiburg is a public music academy subsidized by the State of Baden-Württemberg for academic research and artistic and pedagogical training in music.
The Hochschule was initially founded as a municipal institution in 1946 under the direction of Gustav Scheck, but two years later became an institution of the State of Baden . The original facilities were two intact townhouses in Freiburg's largely destroyed city center. Many of the early students went on to become renowned musicians, including the tenor Fritz Wunderlich. Numerous outstanding instrumental soloists and teachers have taught at the Hochschule, including Harald Genzmer, Aurele Nicolet, Ulrich Koch, Wolfgang Marschner, Ludwig Doerr, Carl Seemann, Erich and Elma Doflein, Edith Picht-Axenfeld and James Avery.
