Rasmus Borowski was born in Hamburg in 1974. His parents, recording engineer Richard Borowski and singer Gabi Borowski, often took him to the cinema, where Rasmus discovered his passion for films and music. At the age of four, Rasmus performed his first voice recording in a studio. When he was seven, he started taking guitar lessons. Around this time, he also started making his first short films with his father's Super 8mm film camera. In 1985 he and his mother moved to Brunswick and then, in 1988, to Zimbabwe, where Rasmus went to a boarding school. In 1990, Rasmus returned to Brunswick to finish school in Germany.
After his Abitur, Rasmus took guitar lessons with Andreas Becker (Fee, Peter Maffay), singing lessons with Jane Comerford (Texas Lightning), lessons in orchestral composing and arrangement with Matthias Petereit, as well as acting and voice over lessons with Prof. Marianne Bernhardt at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg.
In 1998/2002, Rasmus successfully completed the Kontaktstudiengang Popularmusik (Popkurs) at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg. He attended master classes for composing with Academy Award winner Jan A.P. Kaczmarek and Japanese Academy Award winner Shigeru Umebayashi. In 2006, Rasmus successfully completed the Filmmasters Program at Universal Studios in Los Angeles.
