Hi Everyone! I’m Jasmin Lee, and I have been the pianist/organist at Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church since 2014. I was born and raised in Northern Virginia (NOVA). My parents are both from South Korea. My mom was a middle school and high school music teacher in Andong, South Korea. Music was a big part of my childhood, as I played both the piano and the flute. I have fond memories of my parents driving me to lessons, recitals, and competitions.
For my Undergrad studies, I majored in Piano Performance at the University of Michigan. I went on to complete my Masters and Doctorate in Piano Performance at the University of Maryland, College Park. At UMD, I had an assistantship in Collaborative Piano, which gave me a lot of experience working with singers and instrumentalists.
In addition to Cedar Lane, I am a staff pianist/teacher at Suitland High School, Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. On Saturdays, I play for Glorystar Children’s Chorus in Potomac, MD. I also maintain a private teaching studio.
In my free time, I like to travel and explore new places to eat. I also like watching mukbangs. If you don’t know what that is, go look it up!
Some exciting news - I finally joined a gym for the first time in my life. I realize, as I’m getting older, your health is VERY important.
