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 Kyung Hee University and earned Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools since 2005. 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 of 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.

My 6 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Catherine for about 7 months now, and we couldn't be happier. After begging me for lessons, of course my child already hates practicing. But Catherine couldn't be more patient, encouraging my daughter so that she enjoys playing by the end of each lesson. Catherine also seems very flexible in her approach to teaching. While she does follow standard curricula for the beginner, she is also extremely open to allowing my daughter play the music she wants to play. Catherine has really tailored my daughter's learning to suit her taste and ability, which engages my daughter and encourages her to want to learn.

Cat has been an absolute pleasure to work with. My partner and I have both been taking in-home lessons with her every week for about two months now, and we've both grown much more comfortable and familiar with piano at our respective skill levels. I'd highly recommend Cat to anyone asking me about piano teachers!

Learning a language should be fun and enjoyable. I use methods that employees all senses which help you to learn more and to remember longer. I was born in Korea and learned English as living in the US. I'm currently learning Mandarin Chinese as well, so I can relate to those who are learning a new language. My previous work experience includes translation and interpretation at a Korean manufacturing company. Each lesson is customized based on your need; business English, conversational/free-talking, improving pronunciation or preparing interviews. I can help students of all ages, from children to adults for all levels of both English and Korean. Please feel free to let me know what your focus is or what you would like to improve. If you don't see an opening for a lesson, feel free to contact me and we can discuss.
I don't claim to know everything - language learning is a life-long process. But I can certainly help you to build the love of learning a new language!

안녕하세요.
저는 한국에서 태어나 미국에 수십년 살면서 영어를 배우게 되었습니다. 지난 몇년간은 통역, 번역에 종사한 경험도 있으며, 현재 중국어도 공부하고 있습니다. 새로운 언어를 배운다는게 어떤건지 직접 경험해 보았기 때문에 영어를 공부하시는 분들과 충분히 공감할 수 있습니다. 저는 영어를 완전히 정복했다고 느끼지는 않아요. 하지만 제가 직접 사용하는 실용적인 방법들, 그리고 다국어를 공부한 사랍들에게 배운 방법들을 공유하면서 같이 공부해 보시도록 격려 드립니다. 매 강의는 배우시는 분의 필요에 따라 맞춤형으로 진행됩니다.
언어는 평생 공부해야 비로소 터득한다고 하지만, 다른사람과 의미있는 대화를 하거나 정확한 정보를 공유할 수 있는 수준은 얼마든지 갖출 수 있습니다. 올바른 의도를 가지고 계시다면, 그리고 조금의 노력과 꾸준함을 투자하신다면 영어는 즐기면서 배울 수 있습니다.

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 Cho.

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
, hip-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.

About Johan
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.

Johan is talented, passionate, and an all around positive force that everyone needs in an instructor. He can help you discover what it is you really want to get out of piano/music, and then guide you to where you want to go.

Johan is a multi-talented musician. He understands music in a unique way and has an ability to communicate that to others that are not naturally gifted in understanding musical concepts. He is very laid back and easy to get along with and has a vibe that makes you feel like you've known each other since childhood. He can also teach at all skill levels from a beginner that doesn't even have rhythm to pro level musicians that tour frequently. He also works really well with teaching kids. When he's working with children, I can see his passion and excitement go to greater heights. It's pretty cool to see it. Give Johan a try. I think there is a 92% chance that you'll learn to play music and make a new friend that you look forward to hanging out with.
