Hyoung Wuk Kim
As a pianist who made the decision to pursue a professional career after his military service, Hyoung brings a unique perspective and approach into his teaching. His experience as a trumpeter in the military band added to his musicianship and ambition, leading him to return fully to his piano training. He also developed a deep understanding and knowledge of the technical mechanism of one’s body in playing the piano and how to help young musicians interpret music. Over ten years of teaching experience at Eastman School of Music, The California School of the Arts, and Suzuki Academy, many of his students have represented their developing musicianship and successes by winning competitions and performing with orchestras.
Hyoung Kim received his Master of Music degree at University of Southern California, where he studied with Stewart Gordon and his Bachelor of Music and Doctorate of Musical Arts degrees in piano performance and literature at Eastman School of Music, where he studied with Nelita True.
