Hello, I am a Masters graduate of UCL who is passionate about the violin and viola, keen to help any willing student improve their string-playing!
I have been playing the violin for 16 years and the viola for 9 years with Grade 8 distinctions on both instruments and have vast experience in all kinds of string-playing from orchestras to live bands. I have received violin and viola lessons for 12 years of my life so I know from personal experience how best a lesson should be taught!
My lessons will vary depending on the student but generally would be:
For those starting out: Basic understanding of music theory, good habits of hand and finger positioning on the violin/viola, simple scales, fun easy-to-learn pieces.
For those doing grades: Every lesson will start a bit of scales or skills exercise, each lesson focussed on a single piece, scales or sight-reading and aural tests and extra fun pieces to play
For those that just want to improve (depending on student): skills-focussed exercises and/or piece-focussed lessons.
I have been playing the violin from the age of 6, viola from 13, and have achieved Grade 8 Distinction on both.
Currently, I am part of the Cascabel Quartet as a violinist/violist and we have played in various gigs including weddings and exhibition openings.
With experience performing solo, in chamber and symphony orchestras, and live music gigs with bands, I have amassed a vast repertoire when it comes to string-playing.
For those students who would receive lessons at my place or do not live too far away (due to travel expenses+travel time), I also offer 30mins lessons for £20. 30mins lessons are ideal for younger students who might find a whole hour tiring and difficult to focus.

Perfect! Minhyuk has been a brilliant violin teacher for my daughter. My daughter can be very shy but Minhyuk has a lovely approach and tailors the lessons to meet my daughters needs. Fun, motivating and inspiring lessons! Highly recommended.
I have now had 4 lessons with Galina's daughter and it's been delightful to teach a student who is so willing to learn, improve but most importantly enjoys music and wants to get better. Couldn't have asked for a better first student!
