Andreas Wolff is a German composer and pianist and was born on November 16th, 1993 in Coburg. He had his first experience with a piano at the age of 19.
 
Yet, this was not the beginning of his musical career. Not only was Andreas a DJ for Germany’s biggest Internet radio station for Electronic Dance Music (EDM), but also had many performances in several clubs and major events. After some time Andreas got a MIDI Keyboard to produce his own Electronic Dance Music, but soon he realized that his interest in playing the keyboard is bigger as producing EDM.
 
Influenced by film score and his background with Electronic Dance Music Andreas decided to learn the piano as an autodidact. In the beginning, he practiced on a piano at his high school. Occasionally he would play duets with one of his classmates, who was already a well-experienced pianist and composer. A few months later Andreas bought his first E-Piano and spent every free minute he had into practicing piano.
 
At the beginning of 2015, Andreas had his first piano lesson with Carolin Heckel who taught him for one year and prepared him for the admission exam for a classical education at the Berufsfachschule für Musik Oberfranken in Kronach. They also worked together on a concert program for a charity concert, that Andreas organized with the collaboration of his former high school principal Burkhard Spachmann and the city of Coburg.
 
In June 2015, Andreas passed the admission exam at the Berufsfachschule für Musik. Beside several theoretical subjects, he received a classical piano education from Wendelin Treutlein. In addition to piano lessons, Andreas also started to take classical guitar lessons. With his newly obtained knowledge, he found his own path to the improvisation and composition on the piano. Andreas’ music is defined by its emotive-atmospheric and elaborate minimalistic style.
 
In November 2015, he gave a charity concert in his hometown Coburg, which was his debut as a concert pianist. Under the motto “Best Of Einaudi”, he brought the minimalistic music to Coburg and raised money for the good cause.

In 2016, Andreas worked on his first EP ‘Alone In The Wild’ which was released on January 7th, 2017. A few months later he graduated from the Berufsfachschule für Musik and started traveling through Europe with his piano to busk on the streets of the cities and bring his music to the people. He thereby spent most of his time in London. After returning to Germany he started studying music at the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt Weimar and working on his next EP ‘Wayfaring’ which was released on August 11th, 2018.
