All methods of musical pedagogy are at my disposal. Depending on age, musicality, physical abilities, we can learn : by ear, using Solfege syllables. Letter-Numeric approach, Middle C-G concept. I use practical theory at Key board, encouraging to compose music. Have special approach to developing practical technical skills. I use all in combination, depending on previous experiences of the student. Despite of all "Easy Piano" methods circulating in public, the most part of piano success depends on practicing diligently and regularly. Read More

For students, both children and adults, I like to put great emphasis on ear training and improvisation. Although I emphasize ear training and improvisation, I do not neglect sight reading and learning repertoire. I make sure to balance these two as well as make sure the student is practicing songs they enjoy as well! Read More

Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. I've also found that a combination of classical and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy the piano and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. If a student isn't having fun in their lessons, then I'm not doing my job! Read More

My lessons have a specific flow. Instead of focusing the whole lesson only on a book, I take my time to jump around and make sure the lesson isn't repetitive and boring. We will switch the focus from to warm-ups, to the book, to scales, to chord, etc. I will also frequently express my gratitude and appreciate to you instead of complaining with frustration. I believe finding the correct actions within a student brings out the best in them and motivates them to be the best they can be. Read More
My method of teaching attunes to the student needs, and flexible when it comes to pieces but I always try to integrate classical music for I believe that it is basic foundation in piano playing. Sometimes I let the student choose any music she likes to learn and try to modify accordingly to the student's level. Read More
Instruments: Piano Organ Synthesizer
I find my greatest joy in life in music and sharing it with others. I am a composer and performing pianist who has discovered music as my most comfortable language for communicating with the world. I have benefitted from studying with some of the world's foremost composers at Juilliard, Bard and the Manhattan School of Music, and am enthusiastic about imparting all that I have learned from them. I have performed my own works with the American Symphony Orchestra, and in such venues as Alice Tully Hall (Lincoln Center), Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood, Aspen, and all over Europe. Read More
My goal is to enable students to enjoy themselves while learning to play the piano. I derive particular satisfaction when a student masters a particular piece of music after practicing hard in my studio and at home. Students are motivated best by learning to play a piece of music that interests them. This may be jazz, blues, classical, bossa nova, or some combination of all these styles. Most students will not become concert pianists but the goal is enabling them to play what they like and to have a fulfilling experience. Read More

Does music run in your family? Tell us a little about your musical family members.
I came from a big family with love for music. As the youngest of 8 children by my parents, I grew up listening to my older sisters and brothers singing the world famous classical songs and folk songs after dinner every evening. Music was a large part of my family and I became a part of my family's musical events. But in reality, I was not encouraged to be a professional singer by my practical family members. As a good hobby, to enjoy singing but not as a tool of life. I had to work hard and persistent to pursue my dreams to be in music and at last, I won the battle to become a completely independent professional performer in opera and concerts as well as a music educator.
Did you have a teacher that inspired you to go into music? How did they inspire you?
I have had a few good teachers who recognized my innate musical talent when I was very shy and insecure in my early ages and during my high school days. At first, I was very much encouraged by my very first piano teacher who believed in my hidden musical gift until junior high school and I gave up my dream to pursue a career as a concert pianist. I wanted to be a professional singer since my childhood, but I was too shy and insecure to express my feeling and dreams of becoming a singer even though I always was selected to sing a solo at school and at churches. When I had to decide to go to music college, in spite of my family's pressure for me to go to the medical school, I was persistent to take voice lessons with my very first voice teacher/opera singer for only three months which was an incredible challenge and miracle for me to be accepted to the prestigious Music College at Ewha Woman's University in Seoul, Korea. My first voice teacher predicted the speedy development of my singing techniques and a strong voice in such a short period, as a miracle to many other peers at that time. Another voice teacher in New York, after Juilliard, the late Louise Casellotti who gave me a life-long gift for solid technique how to rejuvenate my voice with her strong trust in my potentials as a true artist and as a youthful and healthy singer till the end. As a performer and voice teacher, I am so blessed to hand it down to my students what I have learned all the vocal training by these rarely perfect teachers in my life.
What is your dream piece to perform and why?
I have been performing the title role of Madama Butterfly by Puccini, as a typecast in the early age with the major regional opera companies in the U.S.A. and in Korea over a few decades. I have been nurtured by this demanding role, musically, vocally, dramatically and emotionally to become a true and honest artist. Learning more on the stage than in the voice studio! Currently, I am not limited to this typecast role at all. So many exciting and beautiful roles in Puccini, Verdi, Mozart, etc. Luckily, I have performed major roles in I Pagliacci, Un Ballo Maschera and a few contemporary operas.
Have any of your students won awards or been selected for special honors? How have they succeeded?
Yes, One of the professional opera singers won the competitions and grants from Sullivan Music Foundation and won the vocal competitions in New York as well as performing in operas in New York area, Europe, and Ukraine. And many other students are active in teaching children and performing for their communities and churches.
