The percussion duo „DoubleBeats“ was founded in 2012 by Ni Fan (China) and Lukas Böhm (Germany) during their studies at the 'Hanns Eisler' Academy of Music Berlin and became one of the internationally most successful percussion ensembles.
Currently, as part of their postgraduate studies, the duo is artistically supervised by prof. Li Biao, prof. Franz Schindlbeck, prof. Rainer Seegers and pianist prof. Jonathan Aner – as the first percussion ensemble in chamber music worldwide.


DoubleBeats is working on the sustainable development of chamber music with percussion instruments. From now on they will pass on their passion to future generations:

Lukas Böhm was appointed as Professor at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln/Wuppertal in the academic year 2018/2019 and assumed control of the percussion department of the Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber Dresden in 2019 as well.

Ni Fan becomes a visiting professor at the China Conservatory of Music in Beijing from 2019/2020 on.
