Paul Wiancko started playing cello at age five. By age eight, he had composed his first piece of music.
“If you can call it a piece,” Wiancko says. “I think it was maybe a thirty-two measure little tune, mostly in C major, mostly consisting of a couple of triads. And I believe it was called “Breeze.” I had one of my parents’ friends print out the sheet music for it."
But for a long time following that early effort, Wiancko would shift his musical talents elsewhere.
