Private Violin Teacher

Hello everyone, I look forward to working with you! My name is Dr. Jung, and I play and teach violin and viola. I debuted with the Seoul Grand Symphony Orchestra at age 13 and the Rainbow Youth Orchestra at age 14. Since then, I have gone on to win several competitions in South Korea and completed my education in both the Czech Republic and the USA.

In addition to over 10 years of private lesson teaching experience, I am violin faculty at the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan and a violin instructor with the Jackson Symphony String Team.

When I'm not teaching, you can find me performing for the “If Music be the Food…Lansing” series and Camerata Michigan, Cello Plus Series directed by Suren Bagratuni. I was concertmaster for the Michigan State Concert Orchestra and have appeared with several regional orchestras, including the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra, Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra and Midland Symphony Orchestra.

Terrible. Only taught 30 minutes out of 60 minute sessions. On the 3 session I mentioned it and he said he didn’t think my son needed more than that even though we paid for it. Was so disrespectful!!!! Never again!!! Highly unprofessional when asked about why he cut the lessons short. Please don’t leave your kids with this instructor work paying attention. He will get over on you if he thinks you’re not involved.

I use many methods including Suzuki, Kodaly and traditional teachings that include catered practice plans in order to accommodate each student's learning needs. I am very flexible and more than happy to discuss teaching methods and/or special needs with parents and students.

About Alethia

Growing up I was raised in a home full of music. My father, a graduate of the Conservatorio Nacional Superior de Musica (National conservatory of Superior Music) played piano day and night and from there my love for music blossomed. My first experience with music was at the age of 8 when I began to

Alethia is great. She is working with my 7 yr. old daughter as a beginner in violin. She teaches in a way that is fun, appropriate, and respectful. My daughter has already learned so much and looks forward to her lessons with Alethia each week.
Lynne R.
Alethia is very knowledgeable about technique and skilled at teaching.
Mark N.
Alethia is a very talented teacher and violinist. She is extremely professional, attentive and accommodating to her students needs/goals. As an older student with no musical background, she has made the violin less intimidating and more accessible by breaking it down and making it less complex and easier to understand. While, I've only been with her a few years, I'm very proud of the progress I've made with her. If you are interested in taking up the violin, I highly recommend her.

Join me to achieve:

• a solid technical and musical foundation for beginners
• improved technique and increased musical expressiveness for intermediate & advanced players
• support developing strong rhythm and sight-reading skills
• a sense of community with other students and parents during this time of isolation
• confidence and joy in performing

I use a combination of Suzuki approaches, improvisation, Dalcroze-inspired eurythmics, and somatic movement awareness (inspired by Feldenkrais and Alexander Technique) to simultaneously develop fluent musicality, joy in making music, a solid instrumental technique, and musicianship (including reading and theory). A former sufferer of tendonitis, she has a particular interest in addressing and preventing performance injuries, in both beginning and experienced players.

"I met Pyunghwa in Germany when I was 14 and took lessons with her for 2 years. I was having trouble finding a good teacher before then and was quite lucky to find her. She is a kind-hearted, caring, patient, and motivating teacher, not to mention her impressive performing career. As her student, she taught me to look at my music through the lens of a musician, pushed me to connect notes with expression, and imparted useful techniques with which to approach challenging pieces. She always knew exactly what I needed to work on in lessons and how to guide me through it in a way that I would be able to tackle the pieces on my own later on. She would first demonstrate with her violin, then have me practice with her until I was confident. With an expert’s ear and great attention to detail, she picked up the finer details that I might have breezed over. I used the techniques she taught me even when I’d moved, and she was no longer my teacher. Our lesson time was always maximized, and Pyunghwa was energetic and encouraging throughout it.

Pyunghwa cared for me as a music student in her instruction and also sought after opportunities that would help me expand my skills as a violinist. With no school orchestra to join, she found opportunities for me to perform with the local youth orchestra that gave me the experience I later built on to lead my school orchestra as a concertmaster.

With her knowledge and experience, Pyunghwa is a wonderful teacher for both the beginner and the advanced student. She is firm but gentle and patient, able to connect the new student to a challenging instrument in an exciting and approachable manner. As for the advanced student, working with a teacher with such vast experience and natural skill is a blessing."
