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/teacher, Timothy Kain. 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.

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 master classes 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.
