Aaron Minsky is an award-winning composer who has made it his mission to persuade us that bowed stringed instruments (especially the cello) can be extremely effective in popular music. He began his career as a rock guitarist and then went on to study the cello with the finest classical teachers from The Juilliard School and other prestigious establishments. He has performed his works with orchestras around the world and on radio and television. His compositions are truly innovate and mix popular styles with classical techniques to create a unique and exciting musical blend that cellists — especially young cellists — love to play.
