Nicolas Müller, born in Baden-Baden, had his first bassoon lesson at the age of 13.
Upon finishing his studies in Orchestral Music with Prof. Alfred Rinderspacher at the Mannheim University of Music and with Thomas Held at the Hanover University of Music, he successfully completed the soloist course at the University of Music in Aachen under Oscar Bohorquez.
He completed both degree programs with honors. His orchestra career began with an internship with the SWF Symphony Orchestra in Baden-Baden.
After being temporarily employed by the Kiel Philharmonic Orchestra, Baden-Baden Philharmonic Orchestra, and Wuppertal Symphonic Orchestra, he was hired by the Freiburg Philharmonic Orchestra as second bassoonist (and contrabassoonist as needed). In 1997, he switched to the Niedersächsisches Staatsorchester Hannover in the same position, where he is still currently active.
In 2005, after receiving comprehensive training, he took over production of Windeler bassoon reeds from Reinhard Windeler and has continued the long tradition of these reeds ever since.
