Minhwa’s music journey begin at age 5 in her home country South Korea. Along the way, she was invited to perform with the Ukraine Chernivtsi Philharmonic Orchestra when she was 15 years old.
She began teaching in 2010 using different approaches in contrast to conventional piano methods in order to inspire a love for music among her students.
In 2015 she received her master’s degree in Piano from the Catholic University
of Daegu, South Korea. After graduating, Minhwa continued to gain experience as piano instructor and eventually became the general manager at a music school in South Korea.
Her teaching approach encourages students to explore and learn songs they recognize and love including classical themes, pop music, video games and movie soundtracks among others.
In her own words:
“I’m young at heart and really enjoy working with kids and teens. When I am
working with young children, I like singing, dancing, drawing and designing activities
that help my students enjoy every single lesson”.
