Beginning his musical journey as a child, Shaun Cobb started studying the violin at a very young age. Hearing a violinist perform for his pre-k class, Shaun knew at that moment that he was destined to pursue music! At the beginning stages of his violin journey, Shaun participated in the A Gift for Music Orchestra where he served as Concertmaster for three years. Shaun was homeschooled until his senior year when he enrolled at Winter Park High School and played as first violin in the school’s orchestra and also in the All-County Orchestra.
Shaun was part of the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra (FSYO) during his high school years, moving from Assistant Concertmaster in their Philharmonic Orchestra, up to their Symphonic Orchestra. He toured with the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra to Salzburg, Vienna, Prague, and Munich; as well as performed with them at Carnegie Hall in New York. Shaun has also participated in the FSYO Stringmania Summer Camp as a teacher/mentor for 3 consecutive summers. Shaun went on to pursue his undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree at Rollins College where, as a Music Major, he studied under professor Joni Roos. During his time at Rollins, Shaun has played in the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park Orchestra, and served as Principal Second and Concertmaster in the Rollins Orchestra and String Ensemble. Shaun has also performed in masterclasses given by world-renowned musicians Itamar Zorman, Dr. Sylvia Eckes, and Soyoung Yoon.
Currently, Shaun is pursuing his graduate Master of Arts degree at the University of Central Florida where, he studies under Dr. Ross Monroe Winter. Once Shaun graduates in May of 2023, he plan is to continue to spread his knowledge/love of music with as many as he can! Alongside teaching with LIYH, Shaun also has prior experience teaching as a strings teacher at the Orlando School of Music, Beats & Tunes School of Music, as well as the Ryan Ace Music Academy.
