About Tim

TIM WENZL is a professional bassist who grew up near Stuttgart in Germany.

As a son and grandson of two bassists in his family, the decision to learn electric bass was not that far away. At the age of 12, he was allowed to play daddy’s bass for the first time and from then on, he learned to play the instrument autodidactically until he was 19 years old. He has been trained as a bass player at a state music school since 2019 and has continued his studies at the Popakademie in Mannheim since 2022.

As a result, he has played with various artists in workshops and individual lessons, such as Paul Turner (Jamiroquai), Henrik Linder (Dirty Loops) and Dominik Krämer (The Voice of Germany). Tim is musical director and bassist for the show band “Barbed Wire” and plays bass for the party band „FRESCH“. As a bassist for artists with their own music, he is on the road in Germany as well as in the USA.

Musical Career


At the Berufsfachschule für Musik in Dinkelsbühl , he completed a 2-year training course from 2019 to 2021 to become a state-certified ensemble leader with electric bass as his main subject. Other main subjects were choral conducting and band conducting. There he was taught how to make music and everything that goes with it as a craft. Subjects such as composition, ear training, arranging and instrumentation, but also general music theory were taught there by respected lecturers. He had piano and singing as compulsory and subsidiary subjects.
After the 2 years, he still completed the pedagogical advanced year of the vocational school for music in Dinkelsbühl, which he successfully completed in the summer of 2022 with the teaching focus on vocal coaching, pedagogy, teaching practice as well as working in bands or teaching in elementary school.

Since 2022, he began studying at one of the most renowned universities for pop music in Germany, the Popakademie in Mannheim. There you are trained in all areas of the music business and perfectly prepared as a musician. The network of musicians you study with is one of the great advantages of being a student there.
