Bachelor Degree: Silla university
Teaching has always been a passion for me. I began teaching piano lessons when I was in 3rd grade and I start started teaching violin lessons after college. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in music education from Silla university in South Korea, but her love for music started as early as kindergarten on the piano. While in school, I won various piano competitions in South Korea and I performed for a wide range of audiences. I focused on piano but eventually went on to accompany choirs and violin. After graduating from Silla University, I continued teaching both violin and piano lessons in the United States. I enjoys teaching children and encourages lots of parental involvement. I use performance as a tool for motivation by having students put on in-home and group recitals often. I love working with my students and helping them to thrive through music, i find the perfect balance between music study and fun! Outside of music, I also a certified yoga instructor, published novelist and enjoy paragliding, scuba diving and hiking.
I began teaching when I was 3rd grade. My first student was kindergartner who was eager to learn piano but she could not afford to take lessons. She only paid me about 10cents per lesson but I found out teaching was enjoyable and rewarding. My next student was adult. I started having students with all ages. Although I am classically trained musician, I add modern music to help my students enjoy music. I also encourage my students to enter competition or audition for youth Orchestras to challenge themselves and to thrive their musical journey.
For 2 to 4 year old students, I use Mozart mouse series. For 4 to 6 years old students, I usually use Faber series and older students, I like to use Basien series. For violin, I start with Suzuki method and as they progress I add wolfhart, scale and solos for young violinists by barber. I also like organize group lessons so that my students have chance to polish their pieces and gave opportunity to work with other musicians. I also plan recitals for 3 times a year so that my students have at least 3 polished repertoire a year.
I use traditional method for the students who like to pursue classical music and I teach modern music for those who are not so interested in classical music. Even though I use Suzuki method for violin, I emphasize sight reading and theory. For Suzuki students, I encourage them to memorize whole book and perform before move onto next level. For the young students and beginners, I strongly recommend parents observe the lessons so that they can support and help students to practice. I love teaching because i love having musical journey with my students.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
