Piano Accompanying Studio
Gina Hyunmin Lee is a Korean-Canadian pianist, collaborator and educator. She is committed to creating meaningful human connections and honest communication through music. Gina has performed widely in festivals and venues across North America including Songfest, Indian River Music Festival, Toronto Arts and Letters Club, Roy Thompson Hall and the Music Gallery in Toronto. Enjoying diverse performance engagements, Gina has worked closely with numerous ensembles and regional orchestras including the Contemporary Music Ensemble (Toronto), Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra and Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orchestra. In addition to performing, Gina is a devoted educator who is inspired by music’s collaborative and synergetic nature found in educational settings. Her master’s pedagogical research project focused on the relationship between blindness and development of tactile and aural senses at the piano, which was recognized with the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Scholarship. Gina is grateful for her formative years spent as a student at the University of Toronto, where she completed her undergraduate and master’s degrees. There, her mentors were pedagogues Dr. Midori Koga, the late Professor Marietta Orlov and Professor Lydia Wong. She is currently pursuing her doctoral studies at the Eastman School of Music with Dr. Andrew Harley, where she serves as a studio accompanying graduate assistant and departmental assistant.
