Now Alex has played all over the U.S. To this day Alex continually develops his style in ways people would’ve never imagined the violin to sound. Time and time again, Alex Ahn shows the violin can be whatever you want it to be.


Hi : ) My name is Love and I'm 19 years old. I was born and raised in Maryland, but I study Neuroscience and Music at Emory University. I was exposed to the arts since I was very young, as my dad is a singer in the Soldiers' Chorus of the U.S. Army Field Band and my mom was a graphic designer in Korea. My passion for music really started in high school when I'd sit in front of my piano and sing random songs while my parents were out buying groceries. With the help of a friend who enjoys music as much as I do, I learned to be confident and just have fun with it. I began to experiment with music, find my own colors, and meet/learn from other musicians. I hope that I could help others find joy in expressing themselves through music!
