Lynn spent her childhood both in South Korea and the United States. During the transition from one to another, she struggled with the language barrier. However, the marching band and indoor percussion program at her high school let her experience not only the energy and power in music, but also about the culture of America. Through music, she felt comfort and energy. Music taught her to heal and face the pain, and communicate them without the language barriers. Despite starting music late, during her education at the University of Washington, Seattle, with Dr. Bonnie Whiting, she learned experimental contemporary music. Through this, she learned how to create a beautiful sound regardless to the instrumentation. Studying at SFCM for her last half of Undergraduate program with Professor Jack van Geem, she learned to look at not only music but life in a larger picture to create a whole beautiful art combining many beautiful details. She wants to pursue her career onto music therapy, but music performance will always be a big part of her career.
