Mona Kodama graduated from the Kunitachi Music High School in Tokyo, and the Guildhall School of Music in London. She has studied with Akiko Suwa in Japan, Yfrah Neaman and Mark Knight in London, and Joey Corpus in New York.
Mona has a thriving Suzuki practice in North London. She is a regular tutor at major workshops in Britain and Europe, and is professor of violin and viola at the Junior Guildhall School of Music in London.
Mona is violinist of the Marmara Piano trio and of Inseime Ensemble, and co-leads the Keld Ensemble in London. She has given concerto performances with several British orchestras, and frequently performs as soloist and chamber musician in Japan and in many other European countries.
With all the travelling, teaching and playing, there is little time for Mona to do anything else, but like most Japanese she loves to relax in the hot springs!
