While there, he was a member of the Brandon Conservatory Youth Orchestra and several chamber music ensembles. In 1992, he began studying in the Canadian Old Time fiddle style in addition to his classical violin studies. He began competing in the Canadian fiddle contest circuit, and by age twelve, he had won the title of Manitoba Open Fiddle Champion, the youngest musician in history to do so. He has competed at competitions across Canada and the United States, and has over 250 awards to his credit. He was a founding memver of the popular fiddle group "The Fantasy Fiddlers", and at age 13, served as teacher and performance leader of the group, a position he held for several years.
