About Jae

Jae is an award-winning New York-based composer, arranger, teacher, and pianist. As a versatile musician, he breaks boundaries between genres as a composer and performer, and is equally at home with classical, jazz, and popular music. An active arranger in the New York music scene, his big-band arrangement for the History of Men Moving On video, featured on the popular YouTube channel, "cdza," was highlighted on CNN's The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer. As a celebrated pianist, he has won numerous regional and state piano competitions throughout his career as both a classical and jazz pianist, and actively concertizes around the United States.

He is the recipient of many national awards, including the prestigious First Prize of the National Association for Music Education Composers Contest, First Prize of the American Prize in Composition (youngest winner in its history), National Prize of the Music Teachers National Association Composition Competition, and Awards from the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composers Competition and MuSE Young Composers Competition, among many others. His works have been commissioned and performed by numerous ensembles, including “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band, MuSE String Quartet, and Atlanta Academy String Quartet. His music has been performed at The John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Fox Theatre in Atlanta, The Secret Theatre at the Sounds of Arts Festival, The Juilliard School, Savannah Convention Center, and Gwinnett Civic Center. He also attended the European American Musical Alliance program in Paris as a Brian Shea Fellow studying composition with David Conte and counterpoint with Phillip Lasser.

He lectures weekly as a Teaching Fellow in the Music Theory Department at Juilliard, a position he held since his third year of undergraduate studies. He is also serving as the Graduate Studies Teaching Assistant for classes on Beethoven and the American Symphony. As a Gluck Community Service Fellow, which supports the development of a personal commitment to community service, he frequently performs in various healthcare facilities around the New York City area. As a pianist, he serves as the staff accompanist for the Music Advancement Program, an instruction program at Juilliard for highly talented children from backgrounds underrepresented in American performing arts; he accompanies for the MAP Chorus and for student recitals.

He is currently a senior and a first-year masters composition student at The Juilliard School in the “highly selective” Accelerated B.M./M.M. program under the tutelage of Christopher Rouse, a Grammy and Pulitzer Prize winner and the former Composer-in-Residence of the New York Philharmonic. He is the recipient of the Peter Mennin and Vincent Persichetti Endowment Fund, Henry Mancini Fellowship, Cartwright Scholarship, J. & L. Dreyfus Scholarship, Piser Scholarship, Juilliard Scholarship, Juilliard Alumni Scholarship, and Juilliard Scholarship Fund.

Jae has maintained a private teaching studio since coming to Juilliard and has helped many students prepare for theory and ear training placement exams of all levels and win various piano competitions around the country. He is very experienced in teaching students of all age groups, designing unique curriculums that meet each of the students' needs. He keeps an organized progress sheet for every student and reviews them every week for quality lessons.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

Composition is my major at Juilliard. I have won many of the nation's most prestigious composition competitions, and received numerous commissions and performances from professional ensembles all over the nation. I study with the former composer-in-residence of the New York Philharmonic.

Ear Training

I had all A's throughout my ear training studies at Juilliard, even testing out of the freshmen class due to my exceptional performance in the entrance exam. I have perfect pitch, but have helped many of my private students without perfect pitch to hear intervals, chords, and function without having one. My theory and ear training students have gone onto score exceptionally well in their placement exams in schools all around the country.

Korean

My first language is Korean, and I read, write, and speak at a native level. I taught at my church's Korean School for my extracurricular volunteering experience during high school; I also currently tutor college-level Korean in New York City. Since I can speak both English and Korean at a native level and have lived in Korea throughout my childhood, I will not only be able to effectively teach the Korean language but also explain the culture and subtleties that come with learning about a new country. I am willing to teach beginners, intermediate, and advanced students.

Music Theory

I am a theory teaching fellow at Juilliard at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I teach theory concepts and keyboard harmony to Juilliard students and evaluate their progress and performance. I have tutored many students who have gone onto score exceptionally well in their theory placement exams at many universities and conservatories around the country.
