Core Values

Everything we do is guided by these core values. They form the foundation of Tong Ming Xi.







Established World-Class Wood through TMX

One of the leading galleries in Asia, TMX offers a huge selection of rare instruments ranging from collector’s violin to new violins. Our fully-equipped workshop houses our highly-qualified luthiers specialised in comprehensive repair and restoration. Specialising in antique violin restoration, our team of in-house experts are also fully devoted to restoring antique violins, fuelled by the belief that every violin is timeless and unique

Developing a World-Class Sound through TMX

Seeking to bring the best out of every violin and supporting our musicians in their journey to realise their true potential, our violin connoisseurs refurbish and tailor every instrument to her owner’s liking, through tonal adjustments and fine-tuning of every component. Our calibrated, methodical approach allows for a well-tuned instrument to optimise a musician’s performance. Not a single violin leaves our workshop without new life and euphonious sounds.

Thrive with World-Class Education through TMX

To all of us at Tong Ming Xi, music is more than a skill; it is a lifestyle. We believe that making music is meaningful. We want every person who picks up a violin to enjoy playing it. That’s why we started the Global Strings Federation. We wish to foster a strong network of strings and music enthusiasts, united by our passion for music and desire to impact others with it. Our hope is to facilitate a culture of lifelong learning and engagement with music.

Meet The Team

Our team is driven to help every individual develop their passion for music. We see the potential violin playing has in bringing people together, and we want to help achieve that. From enhancing music education in Singapore, to helping individuals reach greater heights with their instruments, everything we do at Tong Ming Xi is dedicated to making music a lifestyle for people.
