The University of Frankfurt an der Oder found Hoepner as a student and favorite of the music faculty. He was the student of Gesius whose influence was undoubtedly heard in Hoepner's music. He became the Kantor in Muncheberg and succeeded Gesius' position at the Marienkirche by the publication of his "Newe deutsche unde lateinische geistliche Lieder" (New German and Latin spiritual songs) dedicated to the city. He composed German and Latin songs, a St Matthew Passion and a great deal of incidental music.
