WATCH: Bowing up a storm

BRANDON Woods only began playing the violin at age nine, but already his young hands are taking the world by storm.

Not only has the 17-year-old released his own single on iTunes, with a matching video clip released today, he will also jet to Los Angeles next year to compete in the World Championships of Performing Arts.

But that's not all, the Kawungan teen said "watch this space" for the soon-to-be-aired season of Australia's Got Talent next year.

Brandon has taken his success and busy schedule in his stride.

"It's hard juggling school and performing and writing, but it's worth it," he said.

While his studies at Xavier Catholic College will soon be done, Brandon wants to follow his passion for music.

He has auditioned at a Brisbane university to study musical composition and performance next year.

The virtuoso, who decided to ditch classical music in favour of something more upbeat, has never looked back.

Brandon writes, performs and produces his own fiddle tunes with electric beat backings.

His extended play single, titled Cyberfiddle, is his second album and he's proud of its boppy tunes.

It took Brandon a few days to write the tracks which he then performed and produced in a Point Vernon sound recording studio.

"My inspiration is Lindsey Stirling (fiddle performance artist) and I've met her twice," he said.

"I thought, 'if she can do it, I can do it too'."
