Musical Background: My first contact with music began at the age of 11 by learning the classical organ. As a kid I took part in several nation-wide competitions. Later, at the age of 17 I became interested in playing another instrument. That was the year I began to play the drums. In the past 18 years I have played in several bands. Also I played some years in the Musicschool-Orchestra in Bochum. Since 2005 I've been teaching drums at the Yamaha-Musicschool in my hometown. Two years later I started to play the guitar. At the beginning of 2011 my long-standing musical friend Lars and I formed a new symphonic metal band, and that was the hour of birth of SILENT WINGS.
