About Minh Le Hoang

Minh Le Hoang began playing popular music at the age of nine, while living in Vietnam. When his family moved to Australia in 1991 Minh, then aged 13, had great interest in classical guitar and decided to take the instrument seriously, studying firstly with Carolyn Kidd and continuing with leading Australian guitarist and pedagogue, Timothy Kain, at the ANU School of Music. He subsequently graduated with first class honours, receiving the highest mark ever achieved by a student in a solo recital. Minh then continued to undertake postgraduate studies and completed the course with a Masters of Music.

A member of Australia’s unique guitar quartet, Guitar Trek, Minh has toured extensively throughout Europe, toured for Musica Viva and appeared at major festivals including the Sydney Festival, Canberra International Chamber Music Festival, Brunswick Music Festival, Port Fairy Classical Music Festival, Frankston, Darwin, and New Zealand International Guitar Festivals.

Minh won first prize in the 50th Tokyo International Guitar Competition having won the Adelaide Spring Guitar Competition in 2001. As a soloist and recitalist within Australia he has given masterclasses and concerts for guitar societies in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra. He has also given concerts and classes in the United States and Southeast Asia and as well as making many appearances on radio and television. In 2008 he released the critically acclaimed solo album The Fall of Birds and a more recent recording Duo Merindah featuring music for guitar and flute.

Minh is a devoted and respected teacher developing the talents of future generations of musicians in Canberra, teaching at one of Australia’s leading guitar departments, the Australian National University School of Music, where Minh has also served as acting Head of the Guitar.

One of the members of Guitar Trek, Minh Le Hoang established his solo credentials with a dynamic Ginastera Sonata. In an inspired piece of programming, the Ginastera was followed by the charming and under-rated Collectici Intim by Vicente Asencio, the rare juxtaposition of these contrasting middleweights yielding a kaleidoscopic finale.” Paul Fowles - Classical Guitar Magazine.
