Fake Artist of the Month: Ling Ling


What instrument do you play and why do you play it?

I play the violin, because I was forced at a young age, but I grew to like it. 

 Do you get nervous when you perform? If you do, how do you get over it?

Not usually. I’ve performed more than I have practiced in my lifetime. I like eating bananas before I perform because they give me a boost of potassium, which helps my muscles.

What is your biggest achievement as a musician?

I learned all the Paganini Caprices when I was born, and then I moved on to the Kachikawawa Caprices at age 1. I eventually learned all the hardest violin concertos as well. But, I did learn Tchaikovsky a bit late at age 5. But at age 2, I learned the Paganini Violin Concerto and Waxman Carmen Fantasy. I am currently 12 years old. 

What performance are you most proud of? And what makes that different from others?

I’m proud of all my performances, I learned a lot from each one of them and that taught me to move forward and become even better at what I do. 

Who do you look up to as a musician?


How do you feel after every performance?

Like a god. 

What is the hardest part about being a musician?

Honestly speaking, practice. And of course knowing where to put all of my many, many trophies.
