Aaron's story

Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist Aaron Stokes made his musical start on a 20-dollar Fisher-Price keyboard. Since then he’s performed alongside top artists such as Solange Knowles, Chris Martin and The Kronos Quartet, crisscrossing the unchartered path between Pop and Classical genres.

Aaron began studying church organ at age 3, where he began to exercise his musical capabilities rooted deeply in gospel and contemporary forms of music. Not stopping there, Aaron’s fervent desire for music led him to the cello where he embarked on his journey through classical studies. His former studies are with award-winning cellist Amy Kim at the preparatory division of Mannes the New School for Music. He then pursued his Bachelor of Music under the tutorship of world renown pedagogue Marcy Rosen, at the Aaron Copland School of Music.

In addition to his training, Aaron has coached with members of Ensemble Connect - a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute, in partnership with the New York City Department of Education.

Aaron’s dedication to his instrument has led to notable performances at Carnegie Hall, The Grammys, The United Nations Head Quarters, Lincoln Center, and Radio City Music Hall. On top of his his solo performances, Aaron is an active member of the Collaborative Arts Ensemble and the Brooklyn Metro Chamber Orchestra. Mr.Stokes has recently debuted in Africa as cellist and pianist with the Collaborative Arts Ensemble, at the Ubumuntu Arts Festival in Kigali, Rwanda.

Aaron is also the founder of his very own business, Stokes Strings Conservatory. Through his business, he strives to enrich the lives of at-risk youth with weekly strings and piano tutorship.

Aaron Stokes is a young and enthusiastic performer who is making conscious actions to enhance the world through the gift of music.
