About Jihye L.

Hello, future students! My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and the Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in Los Angeles, California. I graduated from Kyung Hee University and earned a Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts. I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools. Recently, I worked as a guest speaker at the new social media platform Clubhouse that launched as a new program at TakeLessons. In the past, I have met many K-pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them. So far I have met many passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer a personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII, TOPIK for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean. Are you ready to learn?? Let's begin taking lessons!!
