Korean-American cellist Minna Rose Chung is Professor of Cello at the Desautels Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, Canada). In addition, she is co-author alongside Hans Jørgen Jensen of the internationally acclaimed CelloMind: Intonation and Technique, a discerning pedagogy method praised for its “dense and fascinating treatise focusing not just on the left hand, but almost exclusively on the aspects underpinning the most minute gradations of intonation…it takes written pedagogy to a new level” (Strings Magazine, April 2018).
Minna Rose is a returning guest artist, teacher, and chamber coach to several international music festivals which include the historic Meadowmount School of Music (New York), Rushmore Music Festival (South Dakota) the Heifetz International Music Institute (Virginia), the Aragats Music Festival (Armenia), the Canadian International Cello Festival (Winnipeg, Canada), Rio International Cello Encounter (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), Piracicaba Music Festival (Sao Paulo, Brazil), Alaska Cello Intensive (Fairbanks, AK), Cincinnati Virtual Cello Academy (Ohio), and the Rosamunde Summer Music Academy (Winnipeg).
Dr. Chung is a recipient of multiple national awards in the creative field and featured in Strad Magazine “Teaching & Playing,” April 2018 issue. She has given masterclasses world-wide with presentations of CelloMind’s “You Aren’t Really Listening: Revealing the Mystery Behind Great Intonation,” an exclusive deep dive that aims to disseminate the three main string intonation systems through interactive videos, charts, and a good dose of humor. Her latest pedagogy initiative is devoted to the revised and expanded publication of Fun in Thumb Position with Hans J. Jensen.
