Information About Man Chun - Birmingham teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Man Chun:
I am a laureate of interschool and national competitions such as Hong Kong Bauhinia Cup Strings Competition. I had solo performances in concert venues such as Hong Kong Town Hall, City Hall Theatre, Sha Tin Town Hall, Sheung Wan Civic Centre, etc… and had regular concerto performances with Hong Kong Elite Chamber Orchestra. I had masterclasses with Tamsin Waley-Cohen, Latica Honda-Rosenberg, Marina Chiche, etc. I am now studying with Susanne Stanzeleit.
I started teaching in Hong Kong 6 years ago when I was just in secondary education, and had a few students with various ages and level of playing from total beginners to advanced. They have all got satisfactory results in ABRSM violin exams and in local competitions, and most importantly had become more and more interested in music in general.
In UK, I have worked with students from Birmingham junior conservatoire. They all achieved excellent results in yearly technical exams and performances, and have opportunities to lead orchestra projects in junior conservatoire and national youth orchestras.
My goal is to help develop passion towards violin playing and music making in students. Most students nowadays consider practicing their instrument as a tedious routine, while it should be a continuous exploration and enjoyment. Despite the violin is the hardest instrument to learn/master, it gave me immense excitement and satisfaction that nothing else could replace when I am working towards producing a better sound day by day, and a more relaxing approach in playing. I wish I could spread this passion of mine to people.
