Young Hae Kim

I was born in Daegu, South Korea. I started playing piano when I was about eight years old. My first impression of music was from church. Most of my family members were involved in either music or art; my sister was a voice instructor. Looking back at my childhood, we were always very involved in music as a family. Music became a big part of my life and positively impacted me in so many ways. When I was in high school, I started a choir club and became a leader managing our team. After high school, I decided to pursue my career in music. During my college years, music became my passion. I wanted to touch people’s hearts and show my students how music can change lives.
I completed my Bachelor’s degree in piano, but later decided to pursue my Master’s degree in music education. While working and studying music at the same time, I also had a passion for helping students explore their potential, which I found very rewarding. My Master’s study was focused mainly on teaching and the method of playing piano.
After receiving my Master’s degree, I started my own business teaching private piano lessons. The business lasted for six years and I gained many valuable experiences through teaching and preparing my students for competitions. Most of my students became successful and earned many competitive awards.
In 2007, I moved to Michigan and started working as a choir director at my church.
Piano requires lots of practice and patience. Inevitably, piano is the most fundamental part of music. I would like to show my students how to enjoy learning piano while reaching their full potential in expressing their skills. The expression of piano requires years of experiences and teaching and I would like to show students how to do it.
