Dr. Jung Sook Lee-French's Teaching Method

  • I teach all my students fundamental pianistic techniques on keyboard with focus on fingering, rhythm, counting, ear training, and posture (wrist, arm and shoulder).

  • I teach across all skill levels in music spanning 17th to 21st century in genres ranging from classical, semi-classical, popular, jazz, country, pop, church, screen, to broadway.

  • I teach music theory, improvisation, and composition to all my students.

  • All my students of varying skill levels perform at my annual concert held in June.

  • Many of my students participate in public concerts, competitions, scholarship concerts, festivals, talent shows, and community and honors concerts.

  • I teach pedagogy on teaching beginning piano students to my intermediate and advanced adult students.

  • My intermediate and advanced level students will have their playing recorded on CD or DVD by a professional recording technician. This can be used for college admissions or as evidence of their achievement and talent.
