Background

The love for music and the passion for Beethoven has been the motivation of her dedication to teaching.

The daughter of a prominent physician in Korea, Chung was only four years old when she started classical music lessons, practicing several hours each day.

The piano prodigy was soon awarded distinguished prizes, among them first prize in the Honam Pullma, Pung Moon Competition for Young Pianists. By the time she was twelve, she started recording classical piano music and her debut recital was broadcast throughout her country.

In 1975, at the age of 15, she left Korea to attend the preparatory division of the Juilliard School of Music in New York City, where she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees of music. At Juilliard, she studied with well-known pianists Jane Carlson and William Masselos. Later, she attended the master classes given by Pierre Sancan and had lessons periodically with him in Paris.

Miss Chung, a devoted Christian, has moved to Northern Virginia and established a thriving piano studio in the Tyson’s Corner area since 2010.  She teaches seven days a week but still finds time to attend McLean Presbyterian Church on Sundays.
