Teacher Info

I am Ka Lung Chu (Benny) from Hong Kong and I have over 10 years experience of teaching cello and violin lessons (students/parents can ask me for my previous students\’ ABRSM Practical exam results) . I have passed LTCL in Cello Recital with distinction (2018) and LTCL in Violin Recital with distinction (2013).

I had around 40 Cello and Violin students in Hong Kong (2008-2021) and I have held three Summer Student Concert (2016-2018) in local town hall. In Summer Student Concert, I have organised many types of performance such as String Orchestra, String Quartet, Piano Trio and Young Students Ensemble.

For my experience of performance,  I have joined ABRSM Celebration Orchestra (Hong Kong) as a cello player for 3 years (2015-2017), and I have much experience of performance such as wedding live music , performance for charity.

About my teaching experience, I have taught Cello and Violin in Music Centres, Education Centres and Schools in Hong Kong. I have met different kinds of young children and I have good communication skill with them. For adult students, I understand that they have physical difference with young children but I will try my best to help them to fix the problem of playing instrument.

About my lesson , I have prepared different types of teaching materials to solve difficulties in playing Cello or Violin, such as various bowing, intonation, some tricky rhythm, running passage, left hand frame, shifting, vibrato, tonal control, right hand techniques (martele bowing, spiccato, accent). And I have full instruction for students to make a good posture.

Considering junior students cannot practise well at home, I have used Musescore to make some music videos of elementary teaching materials, so that junior students can follow the videos in my Youtube channel to practise, to make sure that their intonation and rhythm are correct. (Please search my Youtube channel “Benny Chu”, I also have uploaded my video for students reference)

Additionally, I would like to do some ear trainings with students , such as distinguishing intervals and chords , clap the time and rhythm. These help students to build up good intonation and sense of rhythm.
