Jeong Min Lee began her career as a pianist and educator in Seoul, South Korea, and has also taught at Huree University (Ulaanbaater, Mongolia), Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, Yanbian University of Science and Technology and Yanbian International Academy (China), the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the Music Academy of Chicago in Northbrook, IL.  With her extensive background in both classroom and private teaching, she has designed unique programs and individualized instruction for students of all age levels, from beginning to advanced.  Her doctoral project focused on developing performing strategies for small-handed pianists.

Dr. Lee has performed extensively as a pianist and chamber musician throughout the United States, and in Canada, China, and South Korea.  Among the honors she has received are the Kato Perlman Scholarship Award, which allowed her to perform in recital with the Perlman Trio at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2011-2013), and the William Harrison Barnes Scholarship Award from Northwestern University which permitted her to gain significant collaborative experience as a performer. Dr. Lee was also the winner of the UW-Madison Beethoven Sonata Competition, and the UW-Madison Piano Concerto Competition, the latter of which led to an appearance as soloist in the Beethoven Fourth Piano Concerto with the University Orchestra.

Jeong Min continues her commitment to bringing music to the local community-at-large by offering numerous concerts at many Chicagoland venues, churches, and at the Skokie Performing Arts Center.
