Thomas Kügler studied the transverse flute and recorder at the State Hochschule in Münster with Konrad Hünteler and Jeôme Minis where he graduated his soloist diploma on both instruments.  Further studies took him to Milan, where he studied with Pedro Memelsdorff and to the Amsterdam Conservatory, where he was a student of Jed Wentz.

He has performed as a soloist and member of various orchestras and ensembles for early music throughout Europe, Japan and Taiwan, and has recorded for CD and broadcasts (Deutschlandfunk, DeutschlandRadio, WDR and SWR). Together with his Ensemble IL DESIDERO and the catalanian singer Arianna Savall he recorded two CDs with french chansons and italian madrigals of the 16th/17th century. As a recorder soloist he recorded the premiere CD of the Venetian sonatas by the flutist and composer Ignazio Sieber, a co-production with DeutschlandRadio.

Thomas Kügler teaches in Münster, Taiwan and Hongkong and is docent at the Conservatoire de Musique de Luxembourg.
