Private Lessons Teacher

I began my music studies at the age of five, and won several regional competitions. I was awarded the Dean's scholarship for 4 years at Chung-Ang University, Seoul, Korea and got my B.A in music performance. I served as a concert master for the University Orchestra during 4 years, and graduated with the honor of the valedic- torian at the University's music department. In U.S.A, I studied both music education and music performance at the University of Minnesota and played with U of M symphony under conductor Akira Mori.

I am currently an orchestra director at Seattle Christian School, and I have been playing with many orchestras, Chambers and ensembles. I am a member of Yakima Symphony, Tacoma opera orchestra, and playing with Tacoma Symphony, Tacoma city Ballet orchestra, Bellevue Philharmonic and VoZe quartet. I served on the staff of the Tacoma Youth symphony Association as a violin coach, and a youth chamber orchestra director at Full Gospel Tacoma Church from 2005-2015. I was also a private instructor at Pierce College, and was teaching communities in School of Puyallup school district. I am actively involved with different music projects, such as movie sound track recordings and video game music recordings, and different genre of concerts from classical to pop. In 2016, I played with Josh Groban as part of his NW tour.

As an instructor, My goal is to help students recognize and develop their highest potential as a musician and experience of joy of playing. Lots of my older students are playing with the orchestras in School or youth symphonies, and A few of my students won PAFE competitions, All State competition, WA State Solo ensemble competitions. I also would like to create comfortable and fun environment for students where they can easily mistakes and learn from them. My goal is not only teach musical instruments, but expose students to love and appreciation of music.
