Teaching since:

I am a professional solo/collaborate pianist and dedicated teacher who just moved from Rochester, NY where I finished my doctorate in piano performance and literature at Eastman School of Music. Please visit my website for more information and my live recordings and videos. Short bio is below.

-Member of MTNA, MTAC (CM)

    Hyoung, a native of South Korea, began playing piano at the age of six. When he was young, he had a wide interest to learn various musical instruments such as saxophone, trombone, and classic guitar. For the first musician figure, he appears as an electric guitarist in heavy metal band after high school years, then a trumpeter in military brass band in South Korea.  Then he made a challenging decision to play the piano professionally at the age of twenty-two. 

    Pianist Hyoung enjoys a versatile performing career as recitalist and chamber musician. His performances have garnered national acclaim and he has been recognized for his “remarkable interpretation”. He won prizes in several competitions and played in many recitals throughout the United States including Texas, California, Missouri, New York and Virginia. He especially, has been invited to give solo concerts from many educational organizations such as University of Syracuse, University of Central Missouri, Nazareth University, among others. Recently, he has performed Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2 with the Greece Symphony Orchestra in NY.

    As a pianist who made the decision to pursue a professional journey in piano performance after completing military service as a musician in South Korea, he brings a unique perspective and approach in teaching. His time as a trumpeter in the military brass band built up his musicianship and ambition, leading him to return fully to his piano training. Hyoung’s experiences also developed a deep understanding and knowledge of the technical mechanism of one’s body in playing piano and how to help young musicians interpret music. Over 9 years of teaching experience through Eastman School of Music, Bellflower Music School, and Aria’s School of Music, many of his students have represented their developing musicianships and successes not only winning competitions but also performing with the orchestra.
