Sebastian grew up in Stuttgart, Germany. He completed his BA in classical piano performance, and his MA in collaborative piano/opera. He has been teaching piano since age 16, and has worked with numerous theatre productions, orchestras, bands, electronic music projects and songwriters. He finds himself at home in every conceivable style of music, and so plays and teaches pop, jazz, classical, as well as electronic music. He believes everyone has the right to sound great at any age and level, and that students should have a broad range of understanding across many styles to find what they love most, and discover new things that can expand their comfort zone.
