   Vanessa-Mae was born in Singapore in 1978. she moved to England with her mother
    when she was four. Vanessa was already having piano lessons when she came to
    London .a year later, she started playing the violin as well.
   At the age of eight Vanessa went to Beijing in China to study the violin. The course
    takes normal students three years to complete, but Vanessa finished it in six months.
    While she was staying in Beijing, she visited some interesting places like the Great Wall
    of China and the Emperor’s Palace. She remembers that the Chinese she met were very
    surprised that she couldn’t speak a word in Chinese
   Vanessa-Mae began performing when she was ten years old, and at 11 she entered the
    Royal Academy of Music. While she was studying there she played with London
    Philharmonic Orchestra and on tour with the London Mozart Players. She was also the
    youngest person to record violin music by composers such as Beethoven and
    Tchaikovsky.
   In 1995, Vanessa-Mae recorded an album called The violin player. This was not a classical
    album, but a mixture of pop, jazz and techno. It was an unusual album because it was
    the first time a classical musician mixed music in this way. In the same year Vanessa
    gave a famous concert in Times Square, New York. At the end of the concert she was
    so excited that she jumped off the stage and climbed onto a yellow cab. She played her
    last song while she was standing on the roof of the cab. The next day her picture was
    in all the newspapers – Vanessa-Mae was famous.
   Today Vanessa-Mae continues to mix different styles of music, including classical and
    pop as well as sounds from Africa and India. She also composes her own music. Some
    people don’t like her music because it isn’t classical but other people are happy because
    she makes violin music popular.
