He was born in Luxembourg and grew up in a musically rich environment. At a young age he was inspired to pick up the saxophone but aged fifteen he found his true love was actually – a guitar.
Sven Sauber has had an illustrious academic path, starting with an education in classical music; studying at the Luxembourg City Conservatoire; winning a full scholarship (Bertram Pohl Foundation) for private tuition from internationally acclaimed musicians in Paris; teaching guitar and music theory (Ron Steven’s Pop Music Academy); receiving the Luxembourgish National Educator Diploma in 2008 and studying Popular Music Performance in London (Tech Music School – University of West London) from which he graduated with 1st class honors, of course.
As an artist, Sven has plenty of live and studio professional experience. He has been a part of many musical formations and has been a session musician in London’s cut-throat environment. With an impeccable musical knowledge and background in a variety of different styles of music, from acoustic folk to jazz, fusion, metal and pop/rock, he is setting very high standards.
