Budapest has very rich musical culture, and Szabó was inspired to love music even more. The city is also home to the best musical composers the world has ever seen.
Szabó was a high-spirited boy and always stood out amongst his peers. His love was music was expressed at any given opportunity as he was consistently seen using plates from his mother's kitchen to make beats for his songs. The surface of the dining table also served as a drum for beats. With time, his music exercises became even better.
The environment played a significant role in convincing him that music was meant for him. His family home would always come alive with music and dancing. During this period, Szabó made his initial attempts at music composition, and he did excellently.
Unfortunately, the star had to move with his family in 1987 when they all relocated to Austria. His family settled in Vienna. Szabó branched into gospel music and was determined to make the most of his love for music. He joined a gospel choir and was privileged to go on two gospel choir tours in different European cities. He was delighted to have found a means to express his passion. He yearned for proper music education even though he was born a natural. He hoped to learn how to play the guitar, and his wish was fulfilled when he was in his fourth year of elementary school.

During his studies, he was predominantly interested in the application of the Christian faith in the lives of others as well as himself.
