He was subsequently accepted to play in the West Glamorgan Youth Orchestra. Sadly, he hasn’t played the violin for many years, but intends to begin again when he has more time available. At the age of 14, Richard gained an interest in rock and metal music, and so decided to learn to play the electric guitar and drums, quickly picking up guitar skills because of his musical background.
