.

I'm a current student of Mr. Khanh Hong, who is the resident violin teacher here. (He also teaches viola and was planning on opening another sect for a cello teacher, but I'm not quite sure what happened to that...) I pay $100 a month for 4 lessons with him.

Anyway, he speaks with a very thick Vietnamese accent, which isn't bad for me since I speak Vietnamese, but it can cause a potential problem for non-Asian students because they may not be used to hearing that accent. He also has two students per hour, meaning you don't have his full attention 100% of the time (which is good because then you get to practice what he's teaching you without boring him to death).

He is a professional violinist and will help you get gigs for pay if you're a good student/have a lot of talent. He plays for the orchestra in the Asia DVDs and has lots of students play for the Paris By Night DVDs (if you're Vietnamese, you'll know what I'm talking about). And usually, these gigs will go for around $150-$800, depending on how long it takes. I actually had the chance to go to Las Vegas for an $800 pay and free room/board/food, but couldn't because I was in school ;____;

Mr. Hong is really funny (but maybe that's just because I speak his language) and is a quality violinist. He also has a performing orchestra comprised mostly of his current and former students called the Vietnamese American Philharmonic. They do a ton of concerts throughout the year, most notably the annual summer Movie Themes concerts. As far as I'm concerned, there is no fee to play in his orchestra. It's a great experience for violinists as playing solo (as you would in lessons) is different from playing in an orchestra. Plus, you get to chat with a bunch of different musicians and have a great time while studying difficult orchestral music (:

The only reason why I don't give him five stars is because of his very, very thick accent and that, if you're playing as a soloist, he tends to advance you very slowly unless you put in tons of work to show him that you're ready for more (I usually only work on one piece at a time; I'm currently working on Summer by Vivaldi, but I'm not exactly the most hardworking student so I don't get through many pieces in a year).

Long story short, I highly recommend this place if you are a Vietnamese American looking for a violin teacher (: if you're not Asian, then you might have a hard time understanding him, ahaha.
