Asher began classical violin training at the age of 2 and had already performed with the Buffalo philharmonic by age 13. Asher’s expertise in improvisation across multiple genres has led him to a career as a soloist in demand, performing at venues such as Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Hall, Lincoln Center, the Jacob Javitz Center and across four continents.  Asher has also been featured on PBS, CNN, WABC, NBC and the New York Post.  

In 2014 Asher lost the physical ability to play his violin for a number of years, eventually ending up in a wheelchair. Refusing to accept defeat he found a way to heal his body bringing his strength to an unprecedented level.  He used this experience as fuel to reinvent his live concerts as a high-energy contemporary violinist. Asher has been privileged to teach children and adolescents from under-resourced neighborhoods in the Bronx for almost 4 years. Asher is working to influence societal norms and conventional thinking about musical performance, helping to break down social barriers for his fans and beyond.
