Solomon Kim is a multi-instrumentalist who has spent most of his life making music in various forms. He has a love for all genres of music and teaches piano and guitar to students of all ages and proficiency levels.
Growing up, Solomon took piano lessons with instructors who taught him the foundations of technique and an appreciation for classical music. After he developed a passion for punk, metal, and classical rock in high school, the guitar was the next obvious choice. He started writing his own compositions and took courses in music production and theory in college. He played in the Early Music Ensemble at Brandeis University under Professor Sarah Mead, where he learned to play viola da gamba and harpsichord.
After graduating from college, Solomon performed in local bands in the Boston area and hosted open mic nights with another Boston-based musician. After moving to Washington, D.C., he became part of the a cappella group Lawcappella, where he was music director for several years. He helped arrange the sheet music, led practice sessions, and conducted the group in their twice-yearly performances.
Solomon has been privately teaching piano and guitar for a number of years with students of various ages. He recognizes that all musicians have their own journeys with their own goals, and he strives to help his students recognize and exceed them. His greatest joy in teaching comes from seeing his students grow in their love for their instrument and fully realizing themselves as musicians.
