Jan-Peter Itze, born 1998 in Schweinfurt, received his first classical piano lessons at the Schweinfurt Music School with Konrad Lutz. Later with Albin Freibott and Monika Betzel. He was also taught classical guitar by Klaus-Meinert Lausten and jazz guitar by Benjamin Freibott.
In the Celtis-Gymnasium Schweinfurt he came into contact with jazz through piano lessons with Bernhard Pichl. The developed passion for jazz was intensified by lessons with Waldemar Oberst. Jan-Peter participated in the Celtis-Big Band on piano and guitar.
He also took part in several big band workshops and attended master classes with Michael Wollny, Seamus Blake, Julia Hülsmann, David Gazarov and the Eastern Flowers.
In 2020 he finished his studies in jazz piano with Tine Schneider and Bernhard Pichl at the University of Music Würzburg.
Jan-Peter leads his trio, is part of the electro duo NEOCYCLED, the Nico Theo Quintet and can be heard solo at the piano. He is also a producer and composes scores for movies and videogames.
In his music influences such as contemporary jazz, pop, film music, fusion and electronic music converge, creating floating sound worlds, intensive grooves and dreamy episodes.
