Awadagin Pratt first started playing piano at age 6. He picked up the violin at 9. He was so talented at both instruments he ended up graduating with diplomas in piano performance, violin performance, and conducting.

Soon after he decided to focus on piano and conducting - and his career really took off when he became the first African-American pianist to win an international prize, the Naumberg International Piano Competition.
