Aaron writes that "since both my parents are musicians, music has always been a central part of my life."
Multi-talented Aaron has been playing the violin since the age of 7 and now also plays guitar and piano, sings and writes music.
Brought up in Canada and now based in Orkney, Aaron has immersed himself in the local traditional music scene. He plays with many of the Scottish orchestras and has been involved in several productions at the St Magnus Festival.
Aaron is now studying music at Edinburgh University.
How the Award Helped
The Dewar Arts Award enabled Aaron to buy a performance-standard violin. A second Award funded the purchase of a new bow.
