Mourning for the children's song writer Matthias Meyer-Göllner

Matthias Meyer-Göllner was also known as “Irmi with the Timpanes”. The music teacher lived in Kiel and discovered his love for children's songs during his studies in special education. He composed not only songs, but also musicals in which children played the main roles. He also organized participation concerts and workshops for the whole family.

The author of children's songs, Suli Puschban, mourns the loss of Matthias Meyer-Göllner on Instagram. He writes about the photo showing both musicians: “It breaks my heart! (…) No one was as much a children's songwriter by vocation as he was. He delighted an incredible number of children and adults with hundreds of songs full of heart and humor.

The creator of children's songs, Rolf Zuckowski (76, “Christmas bakery”) also says goodbye to his colleague on Instagram. Commenting on Suli Pushban's contribution, she writes: “We are losing such a special, unifying and encouraging force. Heartfelt condolences to his loved ones.”
