Linh was born in a non-musical family, but all of them love the arts. His grandfather, translator Ong Van Tung, has written nine novels, 60 short stories and has won the State Prize for Literature and Arts. He has translated 50 literature works from Chinese into Vietnamese.

Linh is now studying fourth-year violin at the Vietnam Music Academy under the guidance of lecturer Do Xuan Thang.

Although he is only 10, he has received scholarships to join the International Music Session camp to the US for two succeeding years. He has also received a scholarship titled “Vietnam’s Classical Music” involving a trans-national tour in August this year.

At the Thai event, which was held between November 12 and 18, Linh was commended for his “genius".

Linh and his parents were excited at the praise.

Linh has been invited by Argentinean jury member, artist Eduardo Delgado, to join a music camp in Italy next summer.
