After spending some time at International Music College Freiburg, Friedemann realized that he had made a mistake studying jazz guitar. For two years he had spent every day trying to improve his playing technique - with no success. Rehearsing scales was not his thing. Instead, under the radar of his teachers, Friedemann wrote songs.
When he barely made his final guitar exam and his composition teacher (and creative director of the school) Bernhard G. Hoffmann heard his songs and told him "There is nothing more I can teach you", Friedemann quit the program and moved to the Netherlands. Here, he studied MediaMusic and his songwriting exploded.
In the following four years, Friedemann played in front of over a 100,000 people with his band, conducted his music in front of a live orchestra, was featured on prime time television, won two composition awards, had his music going to Cannes Film Festival and worked for some of the biggest names in the industry. He has received recommendations from songwriters Erwin Steijlen (Pink, Shakira) and René Merkelbach (Within Temptation), orchestrator Conrad Pope (The Hobbit, Harry Potter) and composer Jeff Rona (Traffic, God Of War III).
