At Julliard, Kim earned both her Bachelor of Music and her Master of Music under the guidance of Ron Copes, Earl Carlyss and Robert Mann — former and current members of the Juilliard String Quartet. She moved to Los Angeles to work with Robert Lipsett who invited her to be a part of the inaugural graduating class of the Colburn Conservatory.

Upon completing her studies at the Colburn Conservatory, Kim won Assistant Principal 2nd Violin position in Charleston Symphony in South Carolina. Kim has played at many festivals including Aspen Music Festival, Music Academy of the West, Tanglewood Music Festival, Spoleto Festival in Italy, and has performed with many prominent musicians and conductors.

Kim’s honest, dynamic, and luscious playing has earned her the privilege to work and perform alongside some of today’s brightest musical stars like Placido Domingo, Joshua Bell, Yo-Yo Ma, Sarah Chang, Lang Lang, Natalie Cole and Earth, Wind and Fire.

Kim is also one of the founding members of Confido Music Society.
