You Sang Kim was born and grew up in the Republic of Korea. Since his youth, he was very interested in music, both listening and playing. In his free time as a child, he enjoyed playing the Beatles or Disney music on piano. Thanks to a wonderful professor he met in college, he was able to learn about classical music. Three years in the Navy Band allowed him to greatly expand his musical experience, including Orchestra, Big Band, Jazz band, and Marching. In 2007, he crossed the Pacific Ocean to study in the United States.
Since 1997, he has taught music both privately and in many different places including the Peabody Prep School, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Teaching is another very important area of music, and You Sang has found it interesting and is learning a lot from teaching others.
