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.
