Violinist Selma Spahiu was born in Munich and received at the age of four years her first violin lessons with Aiko Mizushima, who works in the Symphony Orchestra of the Bavarian Radio as a violinist. An active participation in the children's choir of the Bavarian State Opera complemented her musical education in childhood. From 2012, she became a student of Jorge Sutil in Munich, before she began studying at the Mozarteum Salzburg with Prof. Schmid in 2015. Selma continued her studies with Sophia Jaffé, where she studies until today.
Selma won a first national prize at "Jugend musiziert" in 2015 and 2016, and as a result was awarded special prizes by Henle Verlag and Bärenreiter-Verlag. In 2015 she won the Chursächsische Förderpreis in Bad Elster, which was associated with a solo performance together with the Chursächsische Philharmonie.
Since 2017, Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben has been providing her with a violin by Jean Besptiste Vuillaume from the Deutsche Musikinstrumentenfond, on which she still plays today.
