My musical journey began at the tender age of seven, a voyage embarked at home, learning the delicate strains of the piano and the violin. The professional stage first called to me in May 2008, where I delivered a joint piano solo recital at Buamart Hall in Seoul, South Korea. A month later, I volunteered "Music gift at noon," a solo concert for at the Asan Medical Center in Seoul. I dove deeper into the world of music academia as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Music at Kookmin University from March 2008 to February 2010. Here, I also had the chance to be a piano accompanist for the Graduate Opera Class from September 2008 to August 2009. My solo recital at Kookmin University's Concert Hall in May 2009 was a milestone in my musical journey. A new chapter unfolded as I moved to Philadelphia where I served as a Teaching Assistant in the College of Music at Temple University from September 2013 to July 2015. I had the privilege of learning from some of the best, performing in the Master Classes at Rock Hall, both in March 2014 and May 2015. I had the unique opportunity to give house piano concerts in Moorestown, NJ, in April 2014 and May 2015, under the tutelage of Alexander Fiorillo, who privately studied with the legendary Vladimir Horowitz. In April 2015, I hit another milestone with my Master’s piano solo recital at Rock Hall, Philadelphia. That same month, I performed a work composed by Joseph Schwantner, the Pulitzer Prize Winner, in a collaborative piano performance at the Temple Performing Arts Center in Philadelphia. I then collaborated the stage with Ricardo Morales, the Principal Clarinetist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, in May 2015. In one of my most memorable performances, I played the Rachmaninoff piano concerto at the Temple Performing Arts Center, Philadelphia, in April 2015. Later, in July 2015, I had the honor of being a piano soloist for a Chamber Winds at the WASBE World Association Conference, held at the California Theatre, San Jose, CA. In September 2019, I joined the Department of Music at the University of Alberta as the Principal Instructor and Teaching Assistant, serving until April 2020. Here, I had the chance to give a piano solo recital at the Convocation Hall in October 2020 and a collaborative recital in the same venue in November 2021. Each experience, each note played, has brought me closer to understanding my passion for music.

Rates and Studio Policies
Registration Fee: $25.00 (One-time lifetime registration fee may be used by all family members)

Rates for instruction:
30 minute private lesson: $39.00
45 minute private lesson: $49.00
60 minute private lesson: $59.00

Travel charge: additional $15.00 per visit (for lessons in a client's home as opposed to my studio)

1. Cancellation Policy
Lessons not cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice are billable to the client and payable to the teacher. This does not of course apply to travel fees unless the notice is effectively given at the door and the teacher has travelled to the location.

2. Cessation (quitting) Policy
A client must provide a 2 lesson notice period to stop lessons. So a weekly student needs to give 2 weeks of notice, a biweekly student works out to 3 weeks notice and a twice weekly student works out to a week of notice.

3. Illness Policy
Lessons cancelled due to illness or extraordinary circumstances with less than 24 hours notice remain billable to the client and payable to the teacher.

BAH teachers are encouraged to offer a make-up lesson at a future date in the interest of client relations and general goodwill. This only makes sense as teaching a student with the flu for example, will ruin the rest of your week's employment.

No more than 2 lessons may be made up due to illness within a 60 day period.

4. Rescheduling Policy
Any lesson can be cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice.

Summer Vacation and Extended Absence Policy

Clients may schedule longer absences for trips etc. 24 hours notice is required.

It is normal and typical for students and about 20% of our teachers to schedule a break in the summer. We do not enforce a notice period (see cessation of lessons) at the end of a long summer break.

5. Evaluation Period
There are no free trial lessons with Beethoven at Home but we do offer a 2 lesson evaluation period where it is easy to try out a teacher. There are no free lessons during the evaluation period and clients may choose to discontinue the lessons at any time by providing the required 24 hours notice. After the student's 3rd lesson the required 2 lesson notice period will apply (see cessation of lessons above).
