Petruta Küpper discovered her passion for music with fourteen years, and she played oboe before she switched to the pan flute. "Pan Flute sounds woke us up every morning" says her mother, "Petruta was very hardworking." "I love my pan flute," says Petruta. "Without music I can't live. When I was sad, I simply played ". Without hard work, discipline and endurance it is difficult to master an instrument like the pan flute. Petruta practices about six hours a day. That also includes breathing exercises and the constant working on the basics.

Kuepper got a musical education at the highest quality level in her home country. She also studied music at the National University of Bucharest with Gheorghe Zamfir, one of the most famous musicians in the world of panpipes. Additionally she attended lectures at the Lucian Blaga University in her home town of Sibiu (European Capital of Culture in 2007) in Sociology and Anthropology. She completed both courses 2005 with a diploma. Then at first worked as a music teacher (primary school, secondary school and high school) and choir director. After that she completed several concert tours that lead her to Bulgaria, Italy, Germany and for three months in the U.S. She also learned English and Italian. In 2007 she attended a Master Class with Gheorghe Zamfir and jointly performed with him on a Romanian television show. Küpper speaks fluent German.
