He has also debuted at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, and other venues across the United States and abroad.

Kim earned his Doctor of Musical Arts in piano performance and literature with a minor in collaborative piano at the Eastman School of Music, where he studied with and served as a teaching assistant for Nelita True.
