"Absolutely phenomenal!" -Susan Kitterman, former Artistic director of New World Youth Symphony

"Beautiful control of the instrument, superior technique, and all of that emotion shows up in her sound as well as watching her. I am awed by her talent. It would be criminal for the world not to hear Jeeyoon perform." -Gary Walters, performing artist and jazz pianist

"In addition to her mastery of the instrument, Jeeyoon's music-making transcends the piano, and has the ability to transport the listener directly into the world of the composer. So captivating and powerful…” -Demarre McGill, Acting Principal Flute of The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra
