In 2010 Chang was invited to perform in the first flute summer camp held in the Northeast provinces of China. She also enjoys performing with chamber ensembles and has been part of a guitar duo, woodwind trio, flute and string quartet, and woodwinds quintet and sextet. Chang currently takes part in many film music score recordings and even has her own composition “The Ocean” for solo flute with extended techniques for modern flute.

She is also part of a studio that organizes student recitals every couple months in collaboration with other teachers of various backgrounds.
As a teacher, I love to see my students take pride in their improvements and strive to be a leader. I have taught many children from the beginning, teaching them how to read music while providing the fundamentals of piano playing. I particularly like to focus on students who are interested in band and orchestra at school. It’s the joy of teaching to see kids marvel at different tones and musicality they can produce.
For all my lessons I include music theory and ask that students try their best to learn how music is connected and formed. Learning flute is a rewarding process, so please be patient and open-minded. Feel free to ask me any questions and I look forward to meeting you!
Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.
A woodwind player since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning flute lessons.
Or maybe YOU’RE the one that wishes to learn! It is never too late to begin learning an instrument. Yes, I'm trying to get you to sign up for lessons, and yes I sincerely mean that. Everybody has the ability, and if you’re determined and interested, there’s nothing st
Everybody learns differently, and everybody likes different things. Whether it’s improvising or singing alongside a song you love or reading through a classical concerto, I’ll help prepare you or your child to tackle a wide variety of styles, without missing out on any of the basics that turn good players into phenomenal musicians. We all know it’s not about being the best. It’s about having fun, and playing music well is definitely fun.
Practice makes perfect! Learning an instrument helps build self-confidence and discipline. If your child’s bored, distracted, or just needs a constructive hobby, music is a great place to get them interested in something that will help them feel better about themselves, and the effects will be felt across everything else they do, through better studying habits to a more patient, diligent work ethic.
It’s also relaxing! Stressed about work? Need an escape? Maybe you want to sound like [insert piano player here]. Everybody has the power to learn an instrument. Seriously, there’s no such thing as “talent.” Just start lessons and get practicing! It really is that simple, and I’ll guide you through every step of the way.
I have a diverse background teaching students of all ages, from 3-year-olds to retirees alike, customizing what we learn to the individual student. We’ll learn how to read music just as easily as you read words; improvise and compose music of our own; and feel good playing any style: classical, jazz, rock, and all. My experience as a working musician in films, musical theater, and pop music, as well as classical concert music, allows me to appreciate and teach styles that many other instructors overlook, and I know full well that learning an instrument is not about becoming a professional; it’s about being able to connect to others or oneself through music… and also to just have fun! There’s no need to learn music we don’t like! It’s not about stuffing Beethoven into your kids’ ears… we just want to make music, be that Beethoven or Billy Joel.
Music lasts a lifetime. I know that’s a terrible cliché, but it’s true, and few other skills can claim that. I don’t want to sugarcoat it: it takes time to learn an instrument. It takes practice, and sometimes it’s frustrating. But the results are well worth it, and like a snowball rolling down a hill, the longer you do it, the faster you get… or something like that. There’s a legitimate analogy in there somewhere.
Now get out there and make some music! But start by signing up for lessons. I can’t wait to get started!
“What’s that chord?” “Why does all my music sound the same?” “How do I fix this voicing?” “I just can’t get it out of my head!” …sound familiar? You’ve probably hit a rut. Or maybe you’re just starting out. Either way, you want your music to sound new, exciting, and to come out exactly how you hear it in your head. Yes… you CAN learn to compose music, you CAN learn to be more creative, and you CAN learn to share your sound with the world.
Film music, classical, jazz… whatever your interest, all music comes from the same place, and by learning a handful of basic concepts, you can apply these to whatever style you’re trying to write. Learning to emulate another musician involves knowing what they’re doing. Learning to create a groundbreaking sound requires that you know what’s already been done, and how to achieve it. Step by step, we’ll work our way there.
We’ll learn how to write cool, interesting chord progressions, how to write beautiful melodies, and how to voice chords. We’ll learn how to control the mood of our music, from making it sound relaxed to adding tension wherever we want. Maybe you’re trying to write for an orchestra, or just a small band. By learning the basics, you can then easily break away from what’s been done and come up with something truly new… the goal of any aspiring composer!

At first, Celine had to change all her bad posture from her previous teacher. After 6 months , Celine was able to correct her bad posture and she won a lot of competitions and passed certificate auditions and orchestra auditions.
Ms. Kim always says bad posture is very related to mad sound and it makes a limit to be improved as a violin player.
What I was impressed was Ms. Kim came most of my daughter's competitions and auditions, recitals. Ms. Kim encouraged my daughter when my daughter was so nervous to play on the stages. I can feel Ms. Kim really loves her students and cares a lot once people become her students.
Bi- Monthly student recital in her studio, helps a lot for kids who wants to have a stage experience and it is very important for their confidence.
I heard Ms. Kim started to teach in Youth orchestra and music colleges. I cheer for her students and her teaching classes.
I strongly recommend Ms. Kim for your kids. A great teacher makes huge difference of performance and most of all their student's personality and future.

Thinking about buying a new instrument? It's a big decision, as an instrument is truly an investment -- especially if you're spending several hundred dollars (or more, for higher-end brands and models) on it. Before making your purchase, you'll want to do some research. But where do you start? With so many brands out there, how do you know which ones are worth the money? What do you really need to ensure years of playing and practicing? We came across a great article over on Donna Schw … Read More
