Due to his father’s job as a captain in the German Air Force, Fred Vanterra grew up in three different German States. He spent his childhood in the garrison town of Diepholz, where he started to take piano lessons at the age of 7 and began to write his own songs.
In 1998 Vanterra and his family moved from Lower Saxony to Schleswig-Holstein. The pianistic education by Mrs. Christel Scheuer in Hamburg created a climate of inspiration and productivity, leading to the first compositions for his fantasy world "Mythanien".
Education and Career (2005 – today)
Although Fred Vanterra always wanted to become a professional musician, he decided to go the safe and solid way and finished his studies in Philology, Psychology, and Philosophy at the University of Göttingen in 2010. Due to his focus on computer-mediated communication, he soon started a career in the online business, that is still successfully running.
Vanterra Arts (2018 – today)
In 2018, Fred Vanterra decided to professionalize his musical career as well. As a first step, he founded the music label “Vanterra Arts” and started to notate and record his collected works, that are part of "Mythanien". This endeavor came to a successful conclusion in 2019, with the release of the same-named album.
