Stefan Krimbacher was born in Kitzbühel (Austria). At the age of nine he received his first accordion lessons at the Landesmusikschule Brixental by Martin Hechenblaikner.
Since 2012 he has been attending the Musikgymnasium Innsbruck and the Tiroler Landeskonservatorium Innsbruck, where he is instructed by Professor Harald Pröckl. He also participated in master classes with accordionists like Luka Juhart and Roman Pechmann.
Stefan was a first prize winner in the category accordion solo at the Austrian competition Österreichische Jugendmusikwettbewerbe Prima la Musica (2010, 2012, and 2014).
"Playing an instrument is more than just following notes from a sheet of music. You have the awesome duty to develop new kinds of dimensions! Music should touch the hearts and emotions of the audience."
