Hello, future students!
My name is Jihye Lee and I teach Piano and Korean language.
I grew up in Seoul, Korea but am currently living in Arcadia, California. I graduated Kyung Hee University and earned my Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.
I have been teaching piano over 20 years and began to teach Korean at Korean language schools since 2000 and take lessons in 2014.
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.
Are you ready to learn?? Let's begin taking lessons!!
