He began playing the violin when he was 11 years old at Penn Wynne Elementary School and credits learning how to read from his the skills he used to learn how to read music. He has performed in four professional Bluegrass competitions and also plays the guitar and keyboard. Aaron recently opened for Gretchen Wilson’s Country on Ice.
