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. For her next act, Jeeyoon collaborated with New York-based visual artist Moonsub Shin to create a multimedia masterpiece, Over. Above. Beyond.
Jeeyoon began studying the piano when she was just four years old, and her love of music and the piano propelled her through her undergraduate studies in piano performance in her native Korea. After moving to the U.S., she graduated with distinction with a Master’s Degree and a Doctorate Degree in Piano Performance with a full scholarship from Indiana University’s renowned Jacob School of Music.
In pursuit of an even deeper understanding of music and refining her ability to share it with others, she earned another Master's Degree in music education, Piano Pedagogy, with a full scholarship from Butler University, where she also simultaneously served as a faculty member. A testament to Jeeyoon’s abilities as an educator: she was recognized with the 'Top Music Teacher Award' from Steinway and Sons for 3 years in a row from 2016 to 2018.
Today, between performances at venues like Carnegie Hall, the Chamber Music Society in San Francisco, and the Stradivari Society in Chicago, Jeeyoon remains focused on finding new ways to connect with audiences and bring a fresh perspective to the magic of classical piano music. She recently launched a fast-growing new podcast dedicated to helping people of all musical tastes and backgrounds discover the beauty of classical music. Journey through Classical Piano delivers 15-minute episodes that feature concert-like musical experiences and in-depth exploration of classical compositions, hosted by Jeeyoon.
Jeeyoon is an art activist, educator, podcaster, and award-winning performer who strives to connect with new audiences and help them discover the magic of classical music. During her 2020 COVID-19 quarantine, she is creating [si-úm], a project that blends classical piano with poetry and spoken word performances, walking daily, teaching and performing on live-streaming at home.
