The power of Music

"Playing a musical instrument is the brain equivalent of a full-body workout. Unlike other brain-training activities like chess and sudoku, playing an instrument recruits almost every part of the brain, including regions that process vision, sound, movement, and memory."

Our mission

After graduating from the Royal College of Music, DanielJungMusic was started by Daniel Jung as a violin studio to deliver high level violin performances as well as teaching accessible across London.
