I have been first trained as a professional opera singer as a child in Korea. For many years, I have performed on stage. When I came to America, I have continued to pursue education in voice (and piano) at Troy University and at Baptist College of Florida while seeking other degrees.
In addition to my main focus on vocal training, I am professionally trained to play instruments such as piano, guitar, flute, and violin. I have learned to play piano and guitar to initially accompany my own singing, but I have continued to study these instruments to this day. I have been a main church pianist, wedding pianist, collaboration pianist, and etc. For flute and violin, I have been a member of ensemble groups and orchestra (and symphonic band) and performed on various occasions.
These training has allowed me to start a music academy in Korea from 1990-1996. There, I have taught all the instruments I have learned: piano, violin, cello, flute, guitar, and voice. It started small, but it grew rapidly and before I came to US in 1996, I had over 250 students. I had hired 6 more teachers, one for each division. My students came as beginners and would leave as educated musicians, who entered competitions, performed in public events and at concerts, and sought degrees in music.
In US, I had a small music studio for many years in Alabama. My students have entered AMTA competitions for state of Alabama, sonata competitions, and many others. Some have won, and others have lost. Those who won smiled and those who lost cried, but all returned with good experiences.
Now in Georgia, I am starting to teach again. I hope to offer my new students same amount of care and education borne out of experience that I have provided for many, many years.
*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching is my passion. I have taught music for over 20 years to students of all ages, of all backgrounds, and of various levels of training. When I teach, I want to make sure that my students are enjoying the process of creating music.
Learning something new, or continuing the education may be difficult or frustrating at times. This may encourage students to give up prematurely. However, when learning is a fun experience, students can learn to truly appreciate the joy of music. I can offer you with this opportunity.
My lessons will typically consist of 3 main sections: music theory, practice (on instrument of choice), and art of performance. The degree of introductions to these will vary depending on the interest and the training level of the student. I may be using Suzuki or other curriculums that are organized and appropriate to the student's learning curve. I will accommodate the musical needs of everyone.
In terms of teaching style, I am patient, friendly, and accommodating. I like to enjoy each lessons with my students, so I will be smiling alot. It'll be a minimally stressful environment.
If you would like to have me as your music instructor, please feel free to ask for me and we'll get started on our musical journey together.

My grandson loves Mrs. Kyungee style of teaching. She is nice and knowledgeable, inspiring, and friendly. She is the right person to teach my grandson. Her passion for music is contagious. She inspires confidence and hard work which is the road to success.
Her daughter is her legacy. At the end of the my grandson's first piano lesson her daughter was gracious to play for us. Her performance was so impressive that it brought tears to my eyes.
I want to thank both of them from the bottom of my heart!

Hyungee is extremely talented, passionate and professional. My children are teenagers and they feel very comfortable with her. She is sweet and nurturing with them, and patient. She also has a great disposition and sense of humor. She is intuitive to their needs and is very encouraging. I do have a little difficulty understanding her, but my children do not.

I've only been working with Kyungee for three weeks, but she has definitely made a great impression on me. She is extremely talented and has a kind and supportive way of teaching others and sharing her passion of music. I look forward to meeting with her every Saturday and receiving her patient lessons. Although I haven't been the model student (I haven't always practiced as often as I should outside of our lessons), Kyungee remains encouraging just the same. She is an excellent teacher for both the old and young.

After my first couple of lessons I started to hear improvement. After the first lesson, the music instructor helped me discover what I can really do. I never knew that I could do the things that I accomplished in her class. She helps me overcome things that I thought I could never do. She also helps me with techniques that I can do before I start my lessons to help me get better. I would recommend her to anybody who's trying to improve their talents. I have been taking lessons from her for almost a month and I already see improvement.

Beyond teaching the technical vocal techniques, she teaches students how to interpret musical pieces in order to make it his or her own.
