Teaching since:

In 2014, I started learning piano when I was 23 years old. I didn't have any knowledge in music back then, but I dedicated my six years in learning music. Now I have certificate in Jazz piano performance, and I'm a classical pianist and a composer. I have AA degree in music and I'm currently junior at UCLA, majoring in music composition. I gained my experience in teaching through tutoring(piano, musicianship, music theory, composition) at a college and also by helping my peers. I share all of my knowledge with my students which will help you get to where you want as quick as possible. I cover music theory, musicianship, and piano. Mostly importantly, my major is music composition, so I can also help students who wants to start composition. I have vast knowledge about the music history as well, so I can provide accurate information about the music or anything that is related to music. I would like to teach beginner to intermediate.

Piano · In studio

Sunghoon is an amazing teacher. He helped me to understand music theory, piano and musicianship more. I would have a lot of questions and he didn't hesitate to answer them. He is patient with his students and wants them to succeed. If there is a specific detail you aren't understanding, he will take his time to help his students understand it. When he would help me with piano, i would ask him to listen to my playing and find my mistakes. He did just that. He wasn't rude about what i needed to fix, but instead took the time to give feedback and even give some methods on how to improve!

Composition · In studio

With my knowledge of music theory at the fundamental level, Sunghoon Eom has taught me deeper levels of composition. My Melodic, harmonic, and stylistic approach has greatly expanded. Sunghoon Eom has the knowledge for your musical questions.
