I am SunJun Hwang from South Korea. I’m studying at Ball State University in Muncie Indiana of the USA with Dr. Robert Palmer.
I graduated elementary school, middle school and high school in Seoul, South Korea. Although playing the piano was a big part of my teenage life, it was just for hobby until fifteen. When I was junior year during middle school, I asked my parents that I wanted to study music seriously. I tried to get in Seoul Art High school but it was failed. For high school, I attended Kyunshin high school of general style high schools. During middle school and high school years, I was a class president for six years. And I got 3rd prize for competition of Seoul symphony orchestra. After I graduate high school, I spent two years to get in university in Seoul. However, in 2011, I decided to go to the USA in order to study music.
My first city of USA life was Atlanta, Georgia. I studied English at ESL programs of Georgia State University. However, since I could not practice and take lessons for piano, I moved to Bloomington, Indiana. In order to prepare auditions for Music College, I have taken many lessons with Mrs. And Mr. Auer at Indiana University
For Music College, I chose Ball State University. I’m currently studying with Dr. Robert Palmer whose distinguished professor for piano performance and next semester will be my junior stand year.
