"I consider it a privilege to be a student of EnJung Kim and she is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Her ability to combine intellectual understanding with joy and passion in the music is inspiring. She is helpful in the smallest details and unfailingly generous of her time, energy and knowledge. She has a way of bringing out the best, always encouraging and motivating me at lessons. Dr.Kim is a truly remarkable artist, and invaluable mentor for me"
"I've known Dr. Kim for over ten years and spent a good majority of that time under her musical guidance. It did not take long for me to realize that she is not only a talented musician, but also a dedicated teacher determined to inspire an intellectual curiosity and appreciation for music as a performance art. Most importantly, because she is an active performer herself, she is very much in touch with each student's needs, frustrations, and desire for improvement. Under her guidance, music inevitably becomes a lifelong friend, even for students who are not necessarily pursuing a career in music. I would say that this is perhaps the most valuable lesson she instills in her students, who end up with a greater appreciation for the arts than they ever would have imagined prior to meeting her."
