I grew up in Korea for the most of my life. Although I live in the states and use English on a daily, I believe that I am a true bilingual since I use both languages on a daily bases.
I can help with every day conversational language to grammar and literature.

About Alexandra K.

I am currently a student at the Juilliard School in New York-- I completed my Bacherlor's degree and will be continuing my studies for my Master's degree. I began to play the cello at the age of 6. I have performed in Nichols Concert Hall, North Shore Center For The Performing Arts, and Bennett Gordon Hall in Ravinia. In New York, I have performed in Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and the Juilliard School’s Paul Hall, Morse Hall, and Wilson Theater. I have also performed in concert halls in Europe; in Salzburg, Austria, and Lisbon, Portugal.

I have taught in settings such as private lessons, cello sectionals, and public outreach classes. I am experienced with Suzuki and a more advanced level as well. I value the personal interaction between me and the student extremely rewarding. Since I am a student myself, I can help you find different ways of practicing that works for you and can help you learn how to navigate your way around the cello efficiently.

In the end, I believe that telling your own story is one of the most valuable aspects of music, and I am excited to help you to find your own way of telling your story with the cello.

I had to stop because of the pandemic. Lessons were thorough, she was insistent and very detailed.

While a bit humbling Alex definitely helped me fix some glaring technical issues, particularly with the bow.

She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.
