Pianist Jennifer Dongyeon Lee, born in Seoul, Korea, is active both as a soloist and chamber musician. Lee won various competitions including the National Music Concours in 2005 and the International Society of Keyboard Music (ISKM) competition in 2009 during the period of her prior studies in Korea. Pursuing her degrees in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and in the United States broadened Lee’s musical career as she held regular solo and collaborative concerts and participated in orchestra projects as well as chamber music festivals.
As an artist, Lee strives to share the knowledge and love for music not only through performing but also teaching. Lee provided individual and group lessons at private music academies as well as organizations including Conservatorium van Amsterdam and Shepherd School of Music, and taught students from various range of age and level.
Studying under Hyun-ah Kim, Frank van de Laar, and Brian Connelly left Lee with great inspirations allowing her to develop special interests and talents for early repertoires. Although she favors composers such as Bach, Haydn, and Mozart, Lee also enjoys performing compositions by Bolcom, Messiaen, and Unsuk Chin.
She is currently pursuing her doctoral degree at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, where she studies with Brian Connelly.
