As a 6 year old girl, Maxine had already had her first trombone lessons at the „Wiesbaden Musik und Kunstschule“ with Joachim Tobschall.
At the age of 13, Maxine founded a young trombone quartet, and this was the reasoning behind her switch to the bass trombone. Ever since then she has dedicated herself to the literature of this instrument.
In March 2017 she was awarded a scholarship in the „Deutsche Musikwettbewerb“ and is now a member of the „Bundesauswahl Konzerte junger Künstler (BAKJK)“. This scholarship gives young musicians the opportunity to found new chamber music ensembles and promotes concerts for them for the coming season 2018/2019.
In 2014 she began studying with Christhard Gössling at the „Hanns Eisler Musikhochschule“ in Berlin. After 3 semesters she moved to Hannover, where she continued studying with Jonas Bylund at the „Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien“.
Throughout the years she has been completing her studies with lessons and masterclasses given by Tomer Maschkowski, David Taylor, Ingo Lahme and Jiggs Whigham.
Even before her studies she has had multiple orchestral playing experiences, such as the „Landesjugendsinfonieorchester Hessen“ (2010-2012) and the „Bundesjugendorchester“ (National Youth Orchestra of Germany 2012-2014).
In the past years she has been playing as a temporary musician at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Staatstheater Wiesbaden and the Stadttheater Bremen. For the season 2018 / 2019 she signed a contract as Basstrombonist in the „Staatsoper Hannover“.
Since 2016 she also has been playing in diverse big bands, such as the „Landesjugendjazzorchester Brandenburg“ under the direction of Jiggs Whigham and the „Bundesjazzorchester“ (National Jazz Orchestra). These bands led her to festivals such as the famous Rochester Jazz Festival, Ottawa Jazz Festival and the Jazztage Leipzig.
