    Dr. Um is patient with his students. He explains difficult techniques in an easier way for students to understand. As a parent, I strongly recommend Dr. Um.

    Dr. Um suggested my daughter switch from violin to viola. It was the right decision to make because my daughter made to UCLA with the viola 3 years later. I am so thankful to Dr. Um.

  • B. Kim

    I never have thought my daughter would be able to perform at Carnegie Hall. Dr. Um made it happen!! He gave good motivation for my daughter to work hard and she made the audition to perform at Carnegie Hall in the end!!!
