I enjoy and take pride in my students' progress in their journey to piano excellence. I am committed to develop my students’ musical talents and to inspire them to achieve their music dreams. I endeavor to create an environment where students feel motivated and excited by music, in order to explore their creativity and self-expression and to uncover their own musical identities. I help them learn more about themselves through music lessons.
“Dr. Seong has been one of my most influential teachers I’ve had in my piano instruction and playing. She reinforced my foundation of understanding and truly brought out expressivity in my playing that I had never considered myself capable of performing. Patient, kind, and nurturing, Dr. Seong helped to foster my love of piano playing and her expert guidance is inspiring. I grew leaps and bounds in the time that I took lessons with Dr. Seong, and still refer back to things she taught me in our lessons years later.”
