Quick Overview

As I reached the microphone, I looked out at the audience…”Please hold off the tomatoes,” I said. A laugh ran through the crowd. They thought I was joking, but I was serious. I couldn’t bear to have my violin doused with a tomato or a rotten egg. 

Picture a frightened teenager at a talent show with an unruly college crowd and an emcee with no talent for pronouncing Hispanic names, and you have the setting for a hilarious episode in Jaime Jorge’s life—one of many in this delightfully frank, self-revealing autobiography. 

No More Broken Strings: The Early Years tells the fascinating story of this gifted violinist who began life in communist Cuba, and was given his first violin at the age of four. His family fled Cuba when Jaime was ten years old. American life was a jarring experience. His inability to understand the language often got him into trouble, as did his rebellious nature. 

Jamie writes honestly about his growth as a musician and his mistakes and struggles with temptation. “As I look back on my life thus far, I can see that the most difficult, lowest points came when I was farthest from Jesus, but He never gave up on me.” 

Jaime has written candidly about his life with the hope that other young people might benefit from his experiences, and be inspired by what God can do through sinful human beings who give themselves—the best and worst of who they are—completely to Him.

Jaime Jorge


Jaime Jorge immigrated to the United States at the age of ten and studied with the eminent violinist Cyrus Forough. In 1994, Jaime was accepted into the medical program by the University of Illinois School of Medicine, taking steps toward pursuing his dream of becoming a missionary doctor. In 1996, he left medical school to devote himself to full-time music ministry.

Jaime has traveled more than six million air miles, playing in more than forty countries and six continents, including North and South America, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa. He has recorded and released seventeen albums and has given more than three thousand concerts. Jaime sees each concert as a brand new opportunity to share the love of Jesus with others. It is his greatest passion to encourage and challenge each person to dedicate and use their talents for God's honor and glory!

Jaime is married to Rachelle Pecovsky, and they live in Tennessee.
