In July 2011, just before coming to Northwestern, Jun Sung Ahn, a classically trained violinist who can play pop melodies by ear, was urged on by friends to make his debut on YouTube with his rendition of “Lighters” by Eminem.

Since then he has been playing violin covers of pop songs to tens of thousands of fans on YouTube, making many of the videos from his NU dorm room.

Check him out on YouTube:

Ahn is best known online for his dance and violin cover of “Gangnam Style" by Psy. It has drawn more than 2.4 million views on YouTube, and the video won first place in a competition that Psy held in South Korea.
