It all began when, at the age of eight, the first steps towards a career in music were made. Sebastian, who was born in Berlin, had his first music lesson. These were lessons in playing the drums and lasted for two years. Not owning his own set of drums, which would most certainly have disturbed the neighbors if he had, he lost interest in his lessons. So at the age of ten his Daddy presented him with his own keyboard. His Mom, not entirely happy with this unprecedented gift, it being neither Christmas nor his birthday, decided he should have some lessons.
