About Jihye
Hello, future students!

My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, California. I graduated from Kyung Hee University and earned a Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools. In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.

So far I have met many passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean.

Are you ready to learn?? Let's begin taki

Jihye is one of the best Korean teachers ever! My mother and I are learning Korean and we needed an expert and that could teach us the basics. We were total beginners until we met her. She taught us the alphabet and phrases. We are currently still taking lessons, and without doubt we will be fluent as well. She is very nice and also cares very much about our learning. She is overall a great Korean teacher and we would recommend her to everyone we know!

Perfect temperament for working with my 7 year old. Sung Je K adapts to my sons whims and, when needed, drew him back into the lesson using them. Ex. My son, on a suger high from a holliday party at school, started blurting out random words. Sung Je K. Took those words, and used them in the lesson. It was fantastic. Sung Je K is attentive and wants his students to learn. A+ teacher!

Salt Lake City, UT

안녕하세요!

My name is Alexandra. I lived in Korea for 16 months and started learning Korean language from scratch myself--so I know the effort it takes to master the basics and I know how to help you get there. I finished up a degree at the University of Utah with a minor in Korean studies in December 2016. I love sharing this beautiful language.

Beginning students can expect to learn how to read and write Hangul (the Korean alphabet) and will progress through basic conversational grammar and vocabulary. Korean includes three formality levels. I teach from the top down (most formal to least) so that student's can feel confident they are being polite and respectful even as they increase their ability to communicate.

About Alexandra
Alexandra Mortenson is a private violin teacher and writing coach in Salt Lake City. Her name means “keeper of man”, hence she has a wonderful husband, eight younger brothers, and a sneaking suspicion that she may end up with all sons. She loves to read, write, run, and hike in the mountains.

Alexandra is delighted by her opportunities to teach and help her students succeed in achieving their personal goals and ambitions. Please contact her with any questions or interest in taking lessons. She teaches the following subjects:

VIOLIN
Alexandra has been studying the violin for over 20 years, taking lessons primarily from Peggy Wheelwright and John England. She played in the youth violin group Pizzicato Strings and was concert master for her middle school and high school orchestras. Alex completed a music minor at the University of Ut
ah in December 2016 and enjoyed four years with the University Campus Symphony.

A few of Alex’s favorite pieces include Csardas (V. Monti), Symphony Espagnole (Lalo), Theme from Schindler’s List (John Williams) and The Devil Went Down to Georgia (Charlie Daniels).

WRITING
Words are Alexandra's passion, and she graduated in December, 2016 with her Honors B.A. in English. She has written for The Standard Examiner,The Daily Utah Chronicle, and LDSLiving Magazine, publishing a variety of articles and gaining experience in research, interviewing, writing, and editing. She has also worked as a research writer and editor for FamilySearch and has been accepted to present twice at the National Undergraduate Literature Conference. She enjoys writing short stories, personal essays, academic papers, biographies, and basically anything that includes words.

KOREAN
Alexandra learned Korean while serving in South Korea for a year and a half as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. While there she taught and studied daily in the Korean language, and upon returning home she started the Korean Studies minor at the University of Utah, which she graduated from in December 2016.

After his first reading/writing lesson with Alexandra, my son was enthusiastic and invigorated. Usually, performing writing exercises for more than five minutes completely depresses him but he thought his hour lesson with her went quickly. I'm very excited to see his improvement in weeks to come.

Do you want to know more about Korea and the language?
I can help you.
I am an experienced Korean language partner from University of Miami for college students since 2015.
From beginner to intermediate, I will be your Korean conversation partner and teacher.

About Hyojung
Hello, my name is Leann Hyojung.

When I was 5 years old, I started my piano training in classical and jazz piano.

I studied Jazz and Pop Piano at the Post Modern Music Dept. at the very famous Kyung Hee University (in South Korea). This is the same school that produced pop stars like Rain, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, Primary, Big Bang’s GD and Daesung, TVXQ’s Yunho and Yoochon to name a few.
Since I was in College, I’ve been teaching pop and jazz piano to a variety of students, from beginner to the experienced, at all age levels. I understand every student is not the same, so I make it a priority to adapt my teaching style to match a person’s learning style to maximize the learning session.

While providing lessons to a variety of students, I joined multiple bands and jazz groups playing various genres such as, alternative rock, hi
p-hop, pop, and fusion. In these groups, I played piano concerts, played for various video projects, and also multiple studio recordings.

After I graduated with my Bachelors, I wanted to develop my music knowledge as a jazz composer. Therefore, I prepared and studied hard, and was admitted to the very competitive University of Miami Studio Jazz Writing program which is top 3 in nation for music programs. Since then, I’ve made Miami my home. In addition to playing music, I have been teaching Korean to UM students in their Direct Independent Language Studies program.

In Miami, my music creativity has grown and I have met amazing musicians. From 2011 to the present, I have arranged, composed, and continue to perform in various fields.

I believe my various experiences will help me teach you to learn the piano in any style you choose. Doesn’t matter who you are, what your experiences are, I will guide you to learn the piano, whether it be for professional reasons or recreationally.

I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it"
Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.

Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.

I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.

I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.
