He owes both violin training and music education training to his mentors and teachers: Traci Patterson, Angela Peugnet, Erin Hansen, and Kirsten Yon. After completing his degrees, he plans to pursue a career as a violinist, who teaches in elementary and middle schools and performs in chamber ensembles and symphony orchestras.
In 2017, He played as a member of the Moores School Symphony Orchestra with Soloist Organist Robert Bates at the Church of St. John the Divine, Houston TX. In November 2022, He performed in the MSM Mosaic Ensemble with the Formosa Quartet in the Residency Concert “American Mirror”.
In violin lesson class, Vu not only helps students develop their violin techniques but also focuses on developing students’ sense of respect, responsibility, discipline, and self-awareness. Vu’s lesson plans also develop a proper level of musicianship for students through music theory including reading and comprehension of music and listening skills. The most important key in Vu’s lesson is to guide students to find the excitement, love, and beauty in music.
