Jeffrey Lam is a first year biochemistry major at UCLA, but spends much of his time playing classical music in UCLA’s Symphonic Orchestra. He started dabbling with classical music at the age of seven through piano lessons. One year later, he picked up the violin in school and found a passion for classical music. Jeffrey was mainly a piano player until the seventh grade when he started to take private violin lessons.
In high school, Jeffrey moved up the ranks, playing as concertmaster of the Symphony Orchestra in tenth grade and concertmaster of the Chamber Orchestra in his senior year. Also in his senior year, he had the honor of playing as the concertmaster of the Long Beach High School All-District Orchestra which played alongside the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra. Besides typical classical music, Jeffrey enjoys playing the erhu—a chinese classical instrument— and is, strangely, known for his talents in whistling. Besides playing classical music, he is a fan of all sorts of music from alternative rock to hip hop.
The only things that rival his passion for music are his love of all things Disney and his passion for all things food.
