about me

Hello, my name is Mario Raguse.

I am a musician, composer, producer and music teacher from Berlin / Germany.

At the age of 7 I started to be interested in guitar. The classical guitar classes were at these times quite boring and strict. Therefore I lost interest quickly and devoted my leisure time to other things. In high school at the age of 13 my interest for drums started to arise. Inspired by records from the collection of my father (Led Zeppelin, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Barclay James Harvest, Steely Dan and many more) the „fire“ for music sparked again. Most fascinating for me at that time was the drummer Phil Collins and his Band Brand X. I founded a school band and got engaged more intensively with music. From that point on there was no stopping. One instrument was not enough. I plunged into e-guitar, piano and singing. My „hunger“ for musical knowledge was at that time barely satisfiable. After finishing school I could further develop my musicality and prove myself in several bands and projects.

In the past, I had the honour of being on stage with renowned artists. Be it James Blunt, Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, Christina Perri, Shakin´ Stevens, Ute Freudenberg, Butze Fischer, Ingo Bischof or less well known musicians, they all inspired me to love and experience music. I draw a lot of strength and energy from my music project “Sing and shout yourself free”, which I offer for children at primary schools. I enjoy the work with children very much. It is exciting and can be very inspiring indeed.
