Classical pianist Jeeyoon Kim delights audiences with a sparkling combination of sensitive artistry, broad emotional range, and impeccable technique and innovative concert experiences. A native of South Korea, Kim has inspired a dedicated and passionate fan base that defies conventional wisdom by expanding on the traditional classical concert experience. Her 2016 debut album, 10 More Minutes, featured a conversation with the audience from onstage. Her second album and concert project, Over. Above. Beyond., further stretched the mold for classical piano performances by collaborating with New York-based artist Moonsub Shin. Jeeyoon's collaboration with the artist delivered a multimedia experience that was also captured in an award-winning music video. Kim’s following project titled, 시음 /si-úm/, began during her 2020 residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity for their 'Concert in the 21st Century' program'. This concert incorporates poetry and black and white photography with story telling between each piece.
Jeeyoon began studying the piano when she was just four years old, and her love of music propelled her through her undergraduate studies in piano performance in her native Korea. After moving to the United States, she received her Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance with Distinction from Indiana University’s renowned Jacobs School of Music.
Between performances at famed venues such as the Carnegie Hall in New York City, Chamber Music Society of San Francisco, and Stradivari Society in Chicago, Jeeyoon stays focused on finding ways to connect with audiences to bring a fresh perspective on the magic of classical piano.
Jeeyoon is an author, educator, public speaker, podcaster, and award-winning performer. In 2021, she published her first book, Whenever You’re Ready, offering readers a personal glimpse into her life. This self-help book in a concert-style structure shares wisdom and insights gained from Jeeyoon's musical experiences. After a successful reception throughout North America and Europe, the book was published in South Korea in 2022. The book, translated into Korean by the author herself, has made it to the top 3 best sellers in South Korea in the self-help category. Jeeyoon Kim currently resides in San Diego. Between a busy concert touring schedule, she happily practices her piano daily, maintains a studio full of dedicated piano students, and surfs each morning at sunrise.
