This is how 2 referees rated Sohyun:
I am a high qualified Piano teacher in London and Norwich. It has been over 15 years of teaching children and I must say it is so indulging to see my pupils grow with talent.
I have graduated my Master Course with distinction at the Royal College of Music, one of the best music institution within UK and internationally.
I am a concert-pianist myself so I am very capable of teaching my pupils in a high standard. My pupils receive distinctions in their ABRSM grade exams, learn correct techniques for performing standard.
Everyday my aim for them is to realize to perform music is to tell a story, therefore I let them know how the fingers should work in many ways in order to produce variety of sounds and among it, how to produce emotions and make playing the piano fun! :)
I studied music in Manchester (Chetham's School of Music) and London (Royal College of Music) as a scholar.
Apart from teaching I am active as a concert pianist, successful in prestigious competitions such as the Nice Côte d’azur 2nd prize 2019, Piano Island Festival 2018, Alion Baltic Music Competition 2017, Oxford Music festival, Recital class 2016, Chappell Medal Competition 2014, Norfolk Young Musicians of the year 2013 etc.
My recent concerts are at St John's Church Waterloo, St Leonard's Church (Hythe), Royal Albert Hall - the Elgar Room, Brighton Unitarian Church, JIC Conference hall. Performing with many Orchestras such as Budapest Danube Orchestra, WSO in UK.
Also give performances internationally such as Ankara and Mersin (Turkey), National Palace of culture congress centre (Sofia Bulgaria) and Thon Hotel Arean (Norway).
Also my CD recordings will be released soon.
I have many recordings in my website and youtube so feel free to search me on the web.
2008 - 2022: Private teaching and accompanying children from age 5 and above, from beginner to grade 8.
Sent many children to NCO (National Children Orchestra), by giving them section practice sessions
Many pupils receive Merit and Distinction from Grade 1 to 8
Many pupils enter Private Schools successfully with scholarship awards and junior department of conservatoires in UK such as Royal College of Music, Guild Hall School of Music and Drama, and Trinity Laban.
Music is another language, it is like a telling story. I want children to play the piano as if they would speak. Myself, this is how I approach to the piano when I perform as a concert-pianist. I would like many little pianists in the future to realise this special thing.
Learning the piano is another way of learning to be discipline.
Every lesson, through scales, pieces, sight reading and theory I let my pupil achieve something and let them realise learning to concentrate with patience helps them in other parts of study.
Pupils who wish to learn online, more than welcome to… However now face to face reopened :)
I am fully vaccined.
