Violin Prodigy Leila Josefowicz Has the World on a String
Born in Toronto, the daughter of physicist Jack Josefowicz and his wife, Wendy, a former biologist, Leila took up the fiddle at age 3. "I didn't want to practice much," she admits. "I was only a baby, and you know how babies are." But she grew up fast. "One day when Leila was 5," remembers Jack, "I was running the vacuum, and she turned to me and said, 'That's an F sharp.' It was the first time we became aware that she had perfect pitch." Leila began studying with her current teacher, Robert Lipsett, in 1985, and a brilliant career was launched.
A fifth grader at Westlake Elementary School, Leila practices three to four hours a day and still finds time for goofing around. She romps regularly with her Labrador and enjoys almost any music but rock. ("That's just a lot of banging and crashing," she says.) Being a prodigy, she finds, isn't all that hard. "I just eat a cheeseburger before I perform," she says, "and Daddy sends out brain waves like, 'You will be good.' I think the same way as my dad."
