It is so important to learn from a real professional. I am international soloist and pedagogue, having studied with the world's greatest teachers, Ivan Galamian, Dorothy DeLay, Josef Gingold, etc. international violin competitions winner. It is very easy to get faulty instruction at any stage of the development. Mine is of the highest of quality. I can teach from beginner to the most advanced. Have been teaching for 40+ years.

About Chin K.

Hi, I am international soloist and pedagogue, soloist with orchestras such as the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Czech Philharmonic, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and winner of major and top prizes at numerous prestigious international violin competitions including the Concours Musical International Reine Elisabeth de Belgique (Brussels, Belgium), Concourse International de Montréal (Canada), Premio Paganini International Violin Competition (Genoa, Italy), and International Violin Competition of Indianapolis (USA). I love teaching all levels and all ages, and for whatever reasons they want to, to improve their violin playing

It’s been a long time since i first met Dr. Chin Kim, however, I clearly remember how his lesson was so scientifically approached and technically making sense in every details. Since then, I kept playing for him and got much ideas and much help from him which I still do time to time.
Although enough of his degrees, he constantly studies the music (I also have seen him taking a music theory class) and he is very diligent in self-enrichment.
Dr. Kim is very friendly to his students and he could be a good adviser not only in playing the violin but in elsewise, too.
I hope lots of musicians get a chance to meet him and play for him. I guarantee it’s worth much

You will not be disappointed with Dr. Kim. I have studied with him for nearly 10 years and he is one or the greatest violin pedagogues. He is great with both teaching techniques and musicality. He is the best not only with the music but also, he really cares about his students. So after knowing him for 20 years, I still play for him from time to time and ask for his advice. I am a professional violinist and pedagogue, and I wouldn’t have been where I am now without my dear teacher Dr. Chin Kim!

I learned so much from my 8 years of lessons with Dr. Kim and I would not be the player I am now without his teaching. He is able to build a solid technique with a scientific approach, and also gives good guidance with interpretation. He will find a way to solve all your weaknesses.

Dr Kim's highly scientific approach to violin playing is worth travelling for me all the way from England, UK. He is a superb violin professor who is so dedicated to his profession. You will never be disappointed to have him as your violin teacher!

Dr. Chin is a great performer and a wonderful teacher. He identified problems with my technique and carefully explained why and how it can be improved. I see his experience teaching through his assignments for each week including etudes, scales and various exercises. He patiently works on each technique with me during lessons and, after practicing at home, I've quickly seen improvements in my playing.
