German Engineering Student with a Passion for Music

My name is Kaiwen, and I am currently studying Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in Germany and have been teaching private piano lessons for 2 years.

Music among technology and automotive design, has always been a huge part of my life, ever since I started learning to play the piano at a very young age. Over the years I have developed a deep passion for this instrument and at some point decided to experiment with popular music.

I have been playing the piano for almost 17 years alltogether and arranging my own cover songs for almost 10 years now.

Having started out learning classical music I soon discovered that playing popular music can be more fun and is much quicker to learn by ear rather than using sheet music.
