Born in Bonn in 1990, Fabian Müller started playing the piano at age four.

A short while later he received awards such as the Ibach Prize and special prizes from the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben and the Jürgen-Ponto-Stiftung.

At the age of 15 Fabian Müller started his studies at the Cologne Conservatoire under Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich. After further first prizes at competitions he created an international stir in 2013, winning several prizes at the Ferrucio Busoni International Piano Competition. Since then he has given solo recitals at many acclaimed festivals such as the Musikwoche Hitzacker, the Musikfestspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Schwetzinger Festspiele, the Heidelberger Frühling and the Aldeburgh Festival in England.

In addition to his regular concert activities Fabian Müller is also involved in passing on his musical passion to children and young people. He works with more than 300 children on modern music every year through the Education Project of the Ruhr Piano Festival. He also gives presentation concerts in which he puts the the music across to audiences in a vivid manner.
