A day in the life of DSharp

Viral YouTube violinist DSharp takes us on a day in his life and shares his story.

One Day in The Life of DSharp

I originally started playing violin when I was 11 years old. Pretty much immediately the first day I took it home, not really even know what I was doing with the instrument, I knew that it was something that I was gonna be pretty much attached. So, this is where I record. I have my whole thing set up here, my bluebird mic, my interface, headphones and here we go. I think I just knew; I had the music in me already, I had that want to express it. And, finally getting an instrument to express it with was just like, OK. Here we go. This is what I've been waiting for.


I probably spend anywhere from 3 to sometimes 8 to 12 hours in here, on a crazy day. But sometimes things are pretty busy too, so I'm only able to be in here for maybe a couple of hours, but it's always productive. When the inspiration strikes, whether it's 3 o'clock in the morning or whatever, I can come in here and take down the idea real quick and hash it out. So, heading out for the day. Pretty crazy day ahead, I have a studio session with my boy, Rafa, meeting with my partners at Collab. But first, got to get some coffee.

Music Saves Lives

Every time I perform it's to raise people's spirits and to open your mind, open your heart and just create an atmosphere of love. I also want to be that guy that a young kid can look up to, that maybe they're in playing their musical instrument. They may not really be feeling so focused and inspired. I want to be that guy that you can look at to be like, hey, it's cool. I like this. This is cool. If he can do it, I can. These music programs are dissipating from our schools at an alarming rate and music literally saves lives and you know; we all need like a form of expression.
