He took also private lessons with the Russian pianist Yuri Egorov.
Between 1998 and 2008 concerts have been given by Marcel Worms in many European countries, South-America, South-Africa, Israel, China, Cuba, the United States and the Far East. Since 2002 Marcel Worms focuses on the piano works of the Spanish composer Federico Mompou. In 2009, he released a cd with unpublished works for piano by Mompou,that had been discovered in Barcelona in 2008. A tango program, which was performed in China and Argentina, resulted in a CD with Tangos for Piano in 2002. With flutist Eleonore Pameijer he is working on their ‘Six Continents Project’ in the Netherlands and abroad. For this project composers from all the 6 Continents wrote a piece in which they expressed their cultural identity. The program has been performed in many European countries, in the USA, Israel and India and it has been released on CD on the occasion of UNESCO’s 60th Anniversary.
