Schubert Avakian was born in Tehran. Since childhood, his parents encouraged him in music, to the extent that he received his first keyboard at the age of 4 from his aunt. When Shojaakian was 11 years old, he started practicing music with his 15-year-old brother, Gilbert. Their joint dedication and practice laid the foundation for their musical journey.

Schubert learned piano from a renowned piano instructor named Isaac. At the age of 15, he began playing the instrument in a band. When he turned 18, he started delving into Iranian music and even attended one of Vigen's concerts.
