Pianist & Music Teacher

Pianist Christine Suehisa-Jang was born and raised in Honolulu,  Hawai’i. She recently collaborated in Jinyoung Won’s Songs of Love  Episode 1, a music documentary recounting the hardship of the first Korean  immigrants to the islands. The film received critical acclaim for its  evocative and moving soundtrack.

Suehisa-Jang has performed in the U.S., Japan, the Baltic and France.  She is a dedicated pedagogue and has enjoyed teaching piano for over three  decades, from New York’s Henry Street Settlement to her own music  studio.

A winner of the Honolulu Symphony Youth Talent Pool, she credits  Vladimir Ashkenazy for inspiring her after performing at his masterclass.  She vividly remembers her early days with mentors Jeanette Chun and  Ellen Masaki, before earning her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees at  the NYC Juilliard School under the tutelage of Martin Canin, Daniel Pollack  and Seymour Lipkin.
