Christian Sanders obtained his bachelor's degree at the Prince Claus Conservatoire in Groningen in 2010. In 2015 he graduated with a 9+ for his master-education at the Utrecht Conservatoire with famous Hungarian/Dutch pianist and teacher Klara Würtz performing the second piano concerto of J. Brahms with the USC (Utrechtsch Studenten Concert) conducted by Bas Pollard. Once he successfully rounded off his master-education Christian resumed his music carrier at the Musik und Kunst Privatuniversität Wien where he continued to develop and refine his skills as a performing artist and passed the prestigious Certificate of Performance Program. Christian took masterclasses with Rian de Waal, among others, and also successfully participated in a large number of competitions. At the International Rosario Marciano Competition 2017 in Vienna he received a special prize for the best interpretation of a composition by F. Schubert.

Christian Sanders has also participated in various music festivals: twice at the Orlando Festival in Kerkrade, which specializes in working with musicians performing in ensembles, and at the Mimir Chamber Music Festival in Fort Worth Texas, where he played the Brahms F minor quintet. Currently Christian is working with the German violinist and composer Thomas Schüler (Wiener Konzertduo) who is studying at Vienna University, the Slovakian violinist Lucia Harvanova and Bulgarian cellist Liliana Kehayova (Bartholdy trio) and with violinist Patricia Kuijk (Duo Patricia and Sanders). Recently Christian also started a crossover project with pop singer Marja Adams.
