A piano student for nine years and a violin student for almost three, Daniel plays violin in an orchestra and an ensemble. Bluegrass is his favorite type of music, and recently he has become quite interested in playing fiddle, mandolin, and guitar. He enjoys playing in a small bluegrass band with his dad and younger brother. Daniel loves to read, and in his free time he sometimes grabs a science encyclopedia. He also likes to build and program Lego robots, spend summers at his family's cabin, bike, swim, and downhill-ski.
