As a teacher, I seek to inspire communication and close listening through music, and to instil a stable technical grounding through a natural and holistic process. I have led chamber music and individual masterclasses as well as outreach work with both mature and very young students, and have also coached ABRSM Diploma candidates through Viva Voce, with high Distinction results. I am very flexible to the age and level of the student, and adaptable to their aims, whether these are graded exams or the simple pleasure of music-making.
A versatile soloist, chamber musician and writer, Enyuan Khong is committed to promoting music as a tool for connection. Enyuan is currently a Fellow at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and graduate in German Literature from the University of Oxford, and uses her multidisciplinary interests to seek this through a variety of mediums, working with composers and artists across fields.
Enyuan has appeared as soloist with the Jenaer Philharmonie, Oxford Philharmonic, Sound Collective Orchestra, Hornton Chamber Orchestra and Oxford Millennium Orchestra in London, Prague, Dresden, Weimar, Berlin and Barcelona. She has performed in major venues in London and abroad, including the Barbican and Wigmore Halls, and the Victoria Concert Hall in Singapore. Enyuan is a founding member of the De Beauvoir Piano Trio and has collaborated as a chamber partner with renowned musicians such as Miguel Da Silva, Andreas Frölich, Carole Presland and Ursula Smith. She also performs in festivals across Europe, most recently in the Encuentro Santander and the Oxford Chamber Music Festival.
Enyuan was recipient of the Stephen Bell Charitable Trust Award, the Ivy Sharp Scholarship, as well as winner of the Ivan Sutton Prize and the St James Prize. She received a FRSM Distinction and was a string finalist in the Royal Overseas League Competition. Enyuan is a Finalist in the St Martins Chamber Competition, currently postponed due to Covid-19.
As a keen promoter of contemporary music and cross-arts collaborations, Enyuan works closely with composers and performers across the arts. Among other projects, she worked on a Royal Opera House commission of Matt Rodgers’ opera ‘She Described It to Death’ with members of the London Contemporary Orchestra, gave the world premiere of Thibault Charrin’s Sonata for Violin And Piano, which he dedicated to her, at St James’ Piccadilly, and performed Péter Eötvös’ ‘The Gliding of the Eagle in the Skies’ as concertmaster of the Santander Festival Orchestra. Enyuan is currently working on a collaboration platform with the dancer Jasmine Chiu, to promote East Asian artists as voices of change.
