ANUVRAT CHOUDHARY
(ENTREPREUNER-TUTOR)

Piano ; Theory ; Aural ; Theory ; Entrepreneurship

Anuvrat Choudhary has been studying music and the piano since early childhood and holds a Distinction in both the Associate and Licentiate Diplomas of Trinity College London, the international examinations board. In 2019, he was the recipient of Olga and Jules Craen Foundation’s ‘Young Musician of the Year’ national-level award, and was a prize winner at multiple all-India piano competitions, including Brillante, but most recently at ConBrio 2020.

 

His notable recent solo performance have been at NCPA, Mumbai and IIC, Delhi. In 2019-2020, he has also given solo recitals across cities in India, including Bangalore and Kolkata, and recorded Chopin’s ‘Storm’ prelude for a documentary film on Poland. He has been selected as a J N Tata Scholar for his musical achievements and as the first Bagri Foundation Scholar at Trinity Laban. He is also the recipient of a bursary from the Inlaks Shivdasani foundation for his Postgraduate degree.

 

He loves to share his passion for his instrument and for music, and finds the concert stage and teaching young musicians the ideal platforms for doing so. He has been training younger musicians both at his university and privately, and has taught at two specialist music academies, Lorraine Music Academy and One World College of Music, in Gurgaon, India. He has also been conducting workshops at music schools on different aspects of piano playing such as practising, listening, and memorisation.

 

The academic nature of music, too, enthuses him, as evidenced in his music dissertation on Liszt’s transcriptions of Beethoven’s symphonies. Having gained an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from Ashoka University, he is currently attending Trinity Laban Conservatoire for his Masters in Music with the goal of becoming a pianist and pedagogue.

 

He aims to use his time there to gain exposure and knowledge about the world of music so that he can create somewhat equal opportunities for upcoming pianists in India in the long run. There is a lack of good instruments, recording studios and professional expertise with the same in India and he wishes that the future, budding pianists of India should not lack an opportunity on the global platform due to the lack of these facilities.

Having received high-quality music education since the age of three, Hyunjung Jung was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, and is now based in London. She went to the Art High School and holds a Bachelor's degree in classical music composition at Ewha Womans University, the most prestigious women's university in South Korea. Although she grew up with Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and much more, she became interested in all genres of music and the music business. This led her to conduct a master's degree in London at University of Westminster.

Hyunjung can also play jazz piano, harp, organ, and a little bit of guitar and cello as it greatly inspires her to work as a musician, art entrepreneur, and music teacher. Grounding on her education and interest in diverse instruments, she works as a composer and pianist in the Jung's Trio which she formed to popularise classical music to the public.

She is especially intrigued by music education in areas like piano, music theory and music history for the young generation, and has been teaching kids since 2014. Moreover, she teaches Korean traditional music at the "London Korean School", the largest Korean school in the UK and disseminates Korean traditional music to a broader audience. Hyunjung really enjoys working as a music teacher and always aims to provide an enjoyable experience of music to children. In January 2022, she joined the Music House for Children team, where she is excited to provide quality music education to a diverse range of students by combining the Korean music education system and the UK music education system.
