About Jae

I studied piano from early age from Mr. Roger Bushell, and continued to pursue a college degree in piano performance with Dr. Mykola Suk at UNLV.  Currently, I work as a real estate agent in the greater Las Vegas area, and I’m also in high demand as a self-employed solo and collaborative pianist, opera coach, composer, and arranger.

 

As a solo pianist, I have been a featured soloist a number of times with the Henderson Symphony Orchestra and the UNLV Symphony Orchestra, playing works such as Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody in the Theme by Paganini and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3. I have also given numerous solo concerts for various causes, playing works such as Goldberg Variations by Bach, Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky, Ballades Nos. 1 and 4 by Chopin, and Eine kleine Mitternachtmusik by Crumb.

 

As a collaborative pianist, I have serviced over 600 individual music clients since 2010, playing for countless concerts, recitals, auditions, competitions, and recordings, encompassing more than 1,000 pieces of classical collaborative repertoire. Since 2014, I’ve been invited to work as a faculty accompanist at the Institute for Young Dramatic Voices in Reno, NV, where I work alongside renowned opera singers, coaches, and pedagogues such as Dolora Zajick, Luana DeVol, Darrell Babidge, and Thomas Muraco. To supplement my opera coaching abilities, I am also studying the basics of Spanish, Italian, German, French, Russian, and Ukrainian languages and diction.

 

As a self-taught composer and arranger since 2002, I’ve written 99 original compositions and 35 arrangements (with my 100th composition currently on the way), and I have recently performed my own 4 Romances for Violin and Piano, Sonata in F minor for Cello and Piano, “Remember My Pain (Part II of the Opera Trilogy)”, and 24 Preludes for Piano.
