Lorenzo Rüdiger was born in Rome to a German family, and grew up in a bilingual and multicultural environment. He started learning the violin under Eugenio Baratta, a pupil of Carl Flesh. After getting his school-leaving certificate from the German School in Rome with studies focused, among other things, on music history, he graduated in violin under Arnaldo Apostoli and continued his classical studies at the University of Rome La Sapienza.

He has actively participated in Roman musical life, particularly by playing in the Orchestra of the Conservatory of Music Santa Cecilia, and later in the orchestra Roma Symphonia, of which he is a charter member.

He started very early to devote himself to music didactics and particularly to violin teaching for young and very young students, favouring ensemble music as his educational tool. He got his violin teaching qualification, examination class AM77.

At present, he teaches violin at the SMIM Giuseppe Bagnera and ensemble music at the German School in Rome. He is also foreign superintendent, on behalf of the German Music Council, of the Jugend Musiziert competition, the most important German competition for young musicians.
