About JONGSUN LEE

A native of South Korea, pianist Jongsun Lee began playing piano at the age of six. Ms. Lee has had more than ten years of experience teaching piano to students of all ages and levels. In November 2013, she was one of the guest speakers at the TEDxSNUSuwon where she talked about the modern relationship between composer and performer.

Ms. Lee received her Bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance from Ewha Womans University, graduating early with a certificate of student excellence. She then received a Master’s degree in Piano Performance with two years of full scholarship from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theater & Dance.

While studying in America, Ms. Lee focused on contemporary music, culmination in excellent reviews from professors on her Master’s recital where she performed George Crumb’s “Makrokosmos”. At that time she collaborated with Artist Mathew Schwartz to display the musical scores using projection mappings. This not only showed an interesting view of her playing inside the piano but also gave the audience a better understanding of the musical score that holds the composer’s intention.

After coming back to Korea, she gave as Invited Artist Solo Concert sponsored by Youngsan Art Hall in May 2013. She played a contemporary program which included works by William Bolcom, George Crumb, the Asian Premiere of “The Studi di colore” and the world premiere of “Fuente y Variación” by Diana Dabby.

Ms. Lee made her Carnegie Hall debut in 2014 as the 2nd place winner of the American Protégé International Piano competition. In addition, she has won many other competitions and awards, including the Korea Music Competition, Donga Music Education News Concours, Price of Korea Piano Duo Concours, and the Italy Verbania International Music Competition.

Ms. Lee is currently on the faculty of Areté Music Academy and Lindeblad School of Music.
