Yoon-Chan Kim

Music and education are my great passions. I feel very fortunate then to be at Oberlin, where we celebrate both world-class performing arts and an elite liberal arts education with equal pride and joy.
 
Born and raised in South Korea, I moved to northern California when I was nine years old. I found music as soon as I arrived, and have been playing the flute ever since. I attended Pomona College where I studied politics and music, and discovered the import of education as a student intern in the admissions office. Upon graduation, I returned to Korea on a Fulbright Fellowship to teach English to high school students. I then worked for my alma mater before joining Oberlin College.
 
The wealth of opportunities Oberlin students have astounds me everyday. I am eager to share with you all that we offer, and look forward to a chance to meet you when I travel to Nevada and northern California.

A tradition since the 1990s, Oberlin Conservatory of Music's Jazz Forums offer jazz studies students the chance to take center stage at the college-owned Cat in the Cream Coffeehouse as part of a small group ensemble. A feedback session that follows each set yields instant praise or critique. This type of studio class offers valuable learning experiences while building confidence among young musicians.
