How I got started playing my instrument

When I was 4 years old I would sing television jingles I heard weeks ago. My parents wanted me to play an instrument because I displayed signs of perfect pitch. They decided on violin; I really didn't have a choice in the matter and they started me when I turned five.

Favorite composer

Dvorak, Mahler, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Mendelssohn. Do I have to pick just one?

Favorite solo piece

Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto
