Overview

Hello, future students!
My name is Jihye Lee and I teach Piano and Korean language.
I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in Arcadia, California. I graduated Kyung Hee University and earned Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.
I have been teaching piano over 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools since 2000.
In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.
So far I have met many of passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with.
I offer personalized curriculum's to each of my Korean and piano students.Also provide a variety of levels of exams for those who would like to take them. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learns Korean.

Super nice and patient. (I have take another piano class long time age and that guy was not patient at all and it makes me nervous so PATIENT is important!!!!!). Will make the best to arrange the time. It is important specially for me who is taking college classes. She makes it easier by showing you some technique. Will definitely recommend her for piano teacher.

Lesson went great! I really love that the lessons are personalized and that we can stop and try again with anything that comes more slowly to me personally, and that we can go faster with the things that I get more quickly. Today we learned the colors, the consonants, and the basic vowels as well as reviewing some basic Korean phrases from last week. Jihye is so nice and very pleasant. Thank you, Jihye! See you next week!!
