In 2015, Kim was designated as a Steinway Artist, joining the select ranks of concert artists and ensembles around the world.
I have a bachelor's degree in music from West Virginia University and both master's and doctoral degrees in music from the University of Georgia.
I am an associate professor of music at the University of North Georgia. I also serve as director of keyboard studies at UNG since 2006 and a nationally certified teacher of music in piano and a group piano teaching specialist since 2011.
My expertise is in being a nationally certified teacher of music in piano performance and a group piano teaching specialist.
I am inspired to provide the best possible piano performance at the highest level in order to promote my career even further as an international performing artist.
My career highlight at UNG occurred in 2014, when I received a Presidential Professional Engagement Award to attend a classical music festival in Vienna, Austria where I performed at Haydnsaal Hall, which is one of Europe’s premiere performance halls.
Also, I was designated a Steinway Artist in 2015. Earning the designation as a Steinway Artist speaks that I am a concertizing pianist who possesses an exceptional level of musical artistry on piano.
From their experiences with me, I hope students not only learn how to play the piano well, but also be well-rounded and educated musicians. By learning the finer points of playing piano from a Steinway Artist, students will enjoy access to the resources of the company's worldwide network and receive assistance on every aspect related to performing on a piano.
