Ich möchte dir sagen, dass es eine Veränderung ist, die ohne dich nicht hätte stattfinden können.
Dein blick, der mich immer wieder aufmuntert, gibt mir Kraft, und mit deiner entschlossenen Stimme, ohne zu schimpfen, läßt du mich selbst herausfinden, was ich verbessern muss. ...
Ich möchte, dass das ganze Universum weiß, was für ein wunderbarer Professor du bist!

I am writing this card to thank you for your generosity in lending your time to teach me. …
Your comments on the Bach were very helpful, and will help me to prepare my pieces in the future. You gave me a new way of looking at the music that I hadn’t thought of before. So thank you so much for that opportunity, and I hope to see you again in the future!

Ein Meisterkurs von Georg Hamann, Mitglied des Aron Quartetts, beeindruckte Rui Hashiba so, dass sie beschloss, ihm nach Wien zu folgen. "Er ist bis heute mein großes Vorbild."
— Rui Hashiba (Interview Kleine Zeitung Kärnten | Feb 2013
I don't know, all the people who had the biggest influence on my life, I saw it from the first moment , really! I think, it's because you see, because you don't judge, because you help by maintaining silence, only; because you believe in values that are good, because you, you are good..
— Sepideh Nikoukar, Teheran | Jan 2012

I am really grateful that I had an opportunity to participate the lessons of Mr. Hamann as a translator for 4 days. That was a great experience for me. ...
Among those various students, Mr. Hamann first listens carefully to the play of the student, then quickly finds the point that the student needs to learn. He gives him/her advice one by one kindly and patiently, sometimes with his funny actions, singing or dancing and so on. Being given his lesson, the play of the student is rapidly being enhanced.
What impressed me most in his lessons is his considerate and thoughtful instruction as below. I listened to it several times in the primary student lessons.
“When you young students learn to play musical instruments, everyone tend to strictly follow the teacher’s instruction, concentrate to the score, and try to only technically develop the skill. That is not the music. That is like a sound-making machine. The music is what makes you happy and what makes audience happy. First of all you have to enjoy playing music, naturally holding the instrument as a part of your body.”
“Every student has the unique talent and potential. Therefore the teachers, parents, and other adults around the students should try to bring out abilities of each student, and help them develop their individual abilities without forcing them to follow the method formally.”
I was deeply impressed with such considerate instruction of him and I am sure he is a great musician with warm heart. I quite agree with him about dealing with children since I am working as a teacher for children.
Also as a fan of the classical music I felt grateful and happy that I was able to closely watch the musical lessons sitting between a “true musician” and a “future musician”. That was a valuable experience for me.

I look forward to see you again, by then I will master what you taught me. Perhaps I need time to master that. I would like to thank you for your kindness in spite of you had so hard schedule.

"Thank you very, very much for your viola seminar! I don't know how to express my gratitude. I could learn so many things from your lecture. I realized how my musical ability is. There were many kinds of things to happen to me for 4 days. But above all I'm very glad that I could have a chance to meet you, listen to your sound and have your lessons. Your lesson made my image of the Hoffmeister concerto much richer! I was very surprised that I could play more easily than before. I had a piece of music that I almost gave up, but you changed my mind only in two days. You have a miracle power! ..
