Man-Khoi started the violin
as early as six years old when he was granted enrollment at the National Conservatory of Music
in Vietnam. He has enjoyed playing the violin since! His progress there was honored three times: as
one of the school talents to have his performance recorded for a music program
on a Regional Television Channel. His passion for learning and performing has continued to grow after he moved to the United States, and he is currently pursuing the Bachelor in Violin Performance at the University of Houston, under the guidance of world-renowned violinist Andrej Grabiec.
He believes that music is an essential and beneficial part in life. It’s true that music concepts can be confusing, but if presented in the right way, it can be challengingly fun instead! He believes that intonation and techniques are required in playing violin, but passion really plays a big role in forming an artist too. He wants to fuel the passion in his students by painting
a picture in everything they work on, which can certainly push the imagination process and become enjoyable!
Aside from classical training, Man-Khoi likes to reach out to different genres like rock, pop, and sometimes country music too. He believes violin playing should not be constricted, and should be something a person really rhymes to. His recent activities including playing gigs with the Infinity Strings Quartet, taking part in the Moore School of Music’s voluntary Opera and Concerto Orchestras, and receiving training at the MASQ’s Chamber Music Institute. He enjoys keeping life busy with various musical activities because the interactions are fun to form and keep.
"To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable." - Beethoven
