Some words from Dr Kim:

My name is Jeehoon Kim. I’ve studied voice performance over 15 years in Korea and the United States. In 2018, I completed and received a doctoral degree at the University of Minnesota. For 15 years, I conducted church and professional choirs and participated in many performances as an opera singer on stage. Through these experiences, I was able to know how to sing naturally and comfortably without any artificial sound. It ultimately became my goal when I teach my students. Some people say singing is hard. Honestly, that is true but it can be easy if you know your singing mechanism through your muscles. I am completely confident in my ability to make them better than before.  I am a very passionate, positive and patient teacher. I have good relationships with my current students.  Hopefully, I can meet many people and help them to find their pleasure for singing.
