He is crazy about the Piano and the Trumpet. He is a big-time fan of classical, contemporary and jazz, with Chopin being one of his favorite composers. However, Vladimir Horowitz is the pianist he looks up to and admires the most. This pianist’s technical wizardry and great interpretations are something to aspire towards.
His favorite pieces on the Piano are Schubert’s A Major Piano Sonata in A Major and Chopin’s Nocturne C Minor in that order. His love and admiration for Babaluku is consummate. His other love aside from Music is Sound Engineering.
He believes that one should learn to play both the Classical and Jazz forms of music. They, he asserts, are fundamental in exploring and understanding individual persona and character. “It is not just about learning how to play an instrument. Learning these forms of music also helps you gain interactional and interpersonal skills.”
There is not a mathematics puzzle that Shafic cannot solve as he is passionate about numbers.
