Amin Keshmiri is an Iranian conductor, instrumentalist and composer. He began playing the violin at the age of 4 despite the difficulties to study music in Iran. At the age of 14, having performed to one of the greatest Iranian conductors and composers, Majid Entezami who was very impressed by Amin's abilities at playing the violin, Amin studied in Isfahan Music High School and was the leader of Isfahan Symphony Orchestras conducted by Majid Entezami himself, Isfahan National Orchestra, Pegah Symphony Orchestra, Payvar ensemble, Isfahan Music School's Symphony orchestra and in various chamber ensembles.
In 2009, Amin moved to the UK in order to continue his studies. Upon arrival in the UK, he was invited to perform in orchestras such as Beethoven Symphony Orchestra, Hale Light Orchestra and Sale Chamber Orchestra where he met Richard Howarth who was very impressed by Amin's musical abilities and violin techniques and they started working together ever since. Shortly after, Amin started studying at the Leeds College of Music where he had such influential performances such as his performances at the BBC venue with LCM symphony orchestra and LCM sinfonietta. He also took up conducting and started having regular lessons under John Anderson.
In autumn of 2011, Amin won the "The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Trust" award and moved to Glasgow, Scotland to continue his studies as a conductor and a violinist at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly known as the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama).
