Welcome to Tokyo Ongaku Violin Studio!

Hi, my name is Dr. Ju Hyuk Kim, and I am a violinist/violin teacher living in Tokyo. I was born in Korea, spent teen years in Japan, and received my higher education in the USA. I am now back in Tokyo.

Tokyo Ongaku provides high-quality private lessons and various musical opportunities to those who are passionate about studying the violin. It is open for those who want to build good technical skills from an early age, and for those who need further professional assistance. It is, of course, also for those who want to keep learning the instrument as hobby.

Ju Hyuk Kim studied with us during his graduate years. He was certainly a distinguished violinist, hard working, and a faithful student. During his studies, he already established his violin studio and gave lessons to several students. He was always good with people, and has successfully trained many violin players. He is definitely a recommendable musician and a teacher.
