Piano, Singing, Acting, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
As far back as I can remember, music has been a part of my life! I started out singing and songwriting and then fell in love with playing the piano. The day that I learned how to merge those passions (i.e. singing while playing the piano) was one of the happiest days of my life!
I have studied classical piano and theory with notable musicians and teachers privately and at Columbia University. My training and performance experience also includes voice and acting. I enjoy teaching and watching my pupils master the fundamentals while developing their own style of playing or even composing their own music! I have developed a keen ability to assess and shape talent from years of training, performing, teaching, and working directly with the head of two music programs to conduct admissions interviews, student evaluations, and performances.

I have played piano for 20 years and sang almost as long. I had professional voice lessons from Daniela Opravialova, retired opera singer, for 6 years and have performed on local stages in several leading roles. I am a proficient sight reader who participated in All State Chorus for 6 years and was awarded the music departmental plaque for my entire school. I have a focus on opera, musical theater, folk, and intermediate piano.

Since I finished graduate school in 2010, I've regularly performed and taught throughout the Metro Atlanta area. As a singer, I've performed with the Atlanta Opera in productions of Lucia di Lammermoor, The Golden Ticket, and Carmen. I also sing as a paid soloist at Decatur Presbyterian Church. In the past I've also sung with the award-winning Atlanta Sacred Choral, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus, Peach State Opera (Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro), Valdosta State University Opera (Masetto in Don Giovanni), and in 2011 I made my professional theater debut as the young opera singer in The Last Romance.
As a music instructor, my students regularly take Superior and Excellent in the National Federation of Music Club's festivals and consistently receive A ratings at Piano Guild competitions. My voice students have sung leading roles in their high school musicals; highly placed in school talent shows; and are praised for their performances in music school recitals.

I have been playing/writing music for the last 10 years. I am a very passionate, positive, and fun person; and my love for music shows in my lessons. Music is more than a hobby to me; it is truly my life, and I love sharing it with others.
The very moment I learned to read music, I started creating music of my own. I enjoyed writing music so much that I decided (while in middle school!) that music was going to be my future, my career, my life! I learned to play guitar and started touring around the South-East, playing my songs for anyone and everyone. During this time I also started teaching private guitar lessons in music stores, for music companies, and at my home studio. This is where I developed my love for sharing the joy of music with others! Eventually, I decided to get serious and I enrolled as a music student at Reinhardt University, where I have been for the last 3 years. At Reinhardt, I am a music education major (focus in guitar), and have completed a minor in piano. Also, I play double bass in the Reinhardt Symphonic Winds and the Reinhardt Symphony Orchestra.
Today, I am a composer and music teacher. I have taught over 60 students in my home studio, and I use the experience that I have gathered over the years to better teach my lessons. I spend the majority of my spare time writing new compositions, and in April 2012, I had my first piece commissioned and premiered by the Reinhardt Symphonic Winds! I am also an active performer, playing acoustic shows regularly.
Guitar, Piano, Singing, Violin, Cello, Flute, Music Theory, Opera Voice
I have been first trained as a professional opera singer as a child in Korea. For many years, I have performed on stage. When I came to America, I have continued to pursue education in voice (and piano) at Troy University and at Baptist College of Florida while seeking other degrees.
In addition to my main focus on vocal training, I am professionally trained to play instruments such as piano, guitar, flute, and violin. I have learned to play piano and guitar to initially accompany my own singing, but I have continued to study these instruments to this day. I have been a main church pianist, wedding pianist, collaboration pianist, and etc. For flute and violin, I have been a member of ensemble groups and orchestra (and symphonic band) and performed on various occasions.
These training has allowed me to start a music academy in Korea from 1990-1996. There, I have taught all the instruments I have learned: piano, violin, cello, flute, guitar, and voice. It started small, but it grew rapidly and before I came to US in 1996, I had over 250 students. I had hired 6 more teachers, one for each division. My students came as beginners and would leave as educated musicians, who entered competitions, performed in public events and at concerts, and sought degrees in music.
In US, I had a small music studio for many years in Alabama. My students have entered AMTA competitions for state of Alabama, sonata competitions, and many others. Some have won, and others have lost. Those who won smiled and those who lost cried, but all returned with good experiences.
Now in Georgia, I am starting to teach again. I hope to offer my new students same amount of care and education borne out of experience that I have provided for many, many years.
