I have had one lesson with Mr. Arron and it is enough to tell that he is a great teacher. He clearly knows how to play guitar. He is both encouraging and firm. He explained to me the expectations for my practice and what he wants me to learn by next week, I am very happy to have him as my guitar teacher.He is an amazing talent and provides me with much needed inspiration.

About Judy
Master's Degree in Piano Performance
Bachelor's Degrees in Performance and Writing&Production

I started learning piano when I was about 3 years old. Music has always been a big part of my life: I was very fortunate enough to grow up surrounded by music. I believe that music has the power to deliver energy to listeners and that it is musicians' responsibility to convey the positive energy and to share the joy of it. Music is a way of communication for everyone!
I was trained classically, and learned improvisation afterwards, so I am capable of reading, improvising, and accompanying. Also, I have played at churches for worship bands and choirs. I studied Theory of Jazz and Popular Music as a minor, along with dual majors at Berklee College of Music.
I was a software tutor at Berklee College of Music, where I taught DAWs(Digital Audio
Workstation) such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Finale, Digital Performer, Garage Band, etc.

My teaching philosophy emphasizes on supporting students find joy in their learning process as they aim for mastery in their skills.
For I understand that every student has different ways of learning, I highly encourage students to be proactive in designing a lesson format.

My performances and production demos are available at:

Dear SooJi,

You asked for my thoughts on you as a teacher, but I don't think I'll be able to explain those very easily. Your impact on my life is more than I can explain or show. Of all the things I've learned from you, I consider Korean to be of a lesser importance than the life lessons, friendship, and communication skills you've taught me, whether on purpose or not. I'm thankful for everything you've done for me. I'll never forget how understanding and compassionate you are, and I can only hope to grow up and be half the person you are now. In all honesty, you're the best teacher I've ever had, and now I can understand what people mean when they say "This teacher shaped who I am today" and I'll never forget on stop being thankful to them.
Thank you for being you<3 Thank you for being the best Korean/Life teacher <3 Thank you for being the most passionate, true, and honest teacher <3

SooJi.. I don't even know where to begin. She is an amazing teacher and just an amazing human being in general. I pick up things very easy but for some reasons, Korean was and is a real challenge for me. I'm not sure why this is. Maybe because I want to learn this more than anything else? Maybe my brain wants to work harder to get where my heart is? Who knows, but I do know why I'm ven progressing in this challenge. A good teacher can inspire hope, stimulate the imagination, and install love of learning. If that quote had a title, it would be SooJi. She is truly my only role model. I'm not exactly sure why she is this to me, but she is. I respect her so much and she inspires me all the time. Honestly, I can't imagine my life without her in it. SooJi means so much to me. More than what can be expressed with pretty little words. A teacher is supposed to give hope to students, but she does so much more. She IS so much more. She isn't just a teacher any more. She is my friend, my role model, my sister. Because of her, hears have changed, hearts have healed, and bonds have been created that some blonde little girls can't get anywhere else. Yes, sometimes SooJi criticizes us, but that's she's supposed to do. We know she cares even more when she does this because she wants us to grow. Without her, I don't think I would know anything nearly as close to what I know now. Not just the language, but also the culture. I wish to always have someone like SooJi in my life, someone who inspires and loves me. I miss you SooJi! Honestly, She is just too phenomenal. She has a natural give of teaching, making jokes with people, making students feel comfortable. She is excellent. I love her so much <3

My daughters started taking Korean lessons from SooJi about a year ago. SooJi teaches her grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and conversational phrases. My daughters' Korean language skills have improved dramatically with SooJi's teaching. SooJi explains things in a way that is easy to understand and her teaching has been a positive influence on my daughter.
