Meanwhile, he was interested in music from very young age. Following his parent’s desires, he completed his Degree of Education and studied Diploma of Computer Science for two more years at Corvet College.
Since music was his whole life dream and performing like Ustad Sarahang on stage in front of audience was his ambition, he started building his career path in music industry. At the age of 19, Mirwais started studying Classic and Rag music with one of the very famous and respected music teachers Ustad Fati-Ali Khan.
