I studied violin performance and music education at Eastman School of Music, Rochester, NY. I have permanent NY teaching certificate and am certified in Suzuki method. Since getting married in 2003, I have lived in four different states with my family and absolutely loved all the adventures. I have taught privately since 2001 and taught at public schools and colleges in NY and IL. With my richly diverse experience in music, life and teaching, I provide the lesson catered to each student's needs.
I love the relationship I build with students and families. It really is life long. I have left a trail of studio families in NY, IL and WA, and love being a part of their lives.
My daughter enjoys her lessons with Young and looks forward to them each week. Young has amazing passion for teaching and knows what students need in order for them to learn better and understand concepts more.
I offer a 30 min trial lesson. I need to make sure it is a good fit for both the student and I before we make a commitment.
During the trial lesson, I will 1) go over the basics of posture (beginner) or listen to the student and go over a lesson plan, 2) explain and provide the studio policy and 3) answer questions.

I started playing the violin at age 4 and that's pretty much all I did gowing up in Korea. Teaching was a natural next step as I attended Eastman School of Music, Rochester, NY. As I began, I realized all those years of taking private lessons from all kinds of teachers gave me an amazing teaching background and enjoyed it tremendously.
I have taught a whole range of students, from 3 year olds in pre twinkle classes in Suziki Institute at Hochstein School of Music to adult students at community colleges. I have sent students to music schools majoring in Violin performance from my private studio and have also taught music minors at liberal arts college.
I loved my children working together to give my husband and I handmade gifts on our wedding anniversary.
Please look for a qualified teacher. It is difficult to undo a bad habit on a musical instrument. To master the correct basic posture and bow hold on a string instrument, one needs a teacher who has invested heavily in that field and reached a certain level of performance.
Anything and everything related to the lesson. I believe in asking questions. If there's any doubt or confusion, ask away. It helps to understand the student better and definitely helps guide the lesson plan to meet the student's needs.
