Sibelius

SIBELIUS is a Venezuelan Project. Founded in 2004, fundamentally based on instrumental neo-classic musical tendencies. Philipp Scheer, its founder and the Group’s Guitar, received classic musical instruction at a very early stage of his life. Philipp originally decided to study and specialize in Violin, but a severe wrist fracture at the age of sixteen rendered him unable to continue. Despite frustration with the injury, his commitment to music led to broader aspirations. He studied Drums for a number of years, playing with diverse bands, incurring a knowledge of non classical music.
