Another string to his bow
ROSSMOYNE Senior High School student and talented violinist Ryan Lee is one of just three students invited to take part in a WASO International Artist Masterclass.
RYAN Lee has Andre Rieu partly to thank for his prodigious violin skills.
The Rossmoyne Senior High School student is one of just three WA students selected to take part in a Western Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) International Artist Masterclass with renowned violinist Grace Clifford this week.
Lee, who started playing piano at just four years old, said he ended up choosing violin over piano after watching an Andre Rieu DVD.
“I began playing the violin at six years old. As I thought playing the violin looked like a lot of fun, I began learning how to play it myself,” he said.
The Year 11 student was selected as part of WASO’s Young & Emerging Artists Program and said it would be “an honour and a privilege” to work with Clifford.
“To me, this masterclass means I was provided with the opportunity to broad my musical understanding and improve my skills on the violin,” he said.
The masterclass performance takes place at the Perth Concert Hall on Wednesday.
