Abstract: Born on 20 May 1931 in Marburg, Germany, Christoph Wagner grew up playing piano. In 1958, after finishing his studies in medicine and subsequent doctoral work, he followed his dream to study music. As he recognized the lack of objective knowledge in professional practicing and teaching, and as he noticed the spread of overuse syndromes, he decided to combine the two fields and to go new ways with scientific methods. His guiding principle was always science for musicians, not on musicians. Christoph Wagner died on 30 August 2013 at the age of 82 in Isernhagen, Germany.
