Bio

Jae Kyo Han has devoted his life to pianos through his work as an instructor (Steinway Educational Partner), pianist, piano tuner/technician, apprentice piano rebuilder and founder of A4 Collective (www.a4collective.space). Introduced to the piano when he was four, Jae began to compete early on and continued to do so throughout his musical studies. He regularly received top prizes in statewide and regional competitions, and was a finalist in the 14th Chiang Wen-Yeh International Young Artist Piano Competition. He was also twice selected to perform in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, both times as a winner of the American Fine Arts Festival.

Following his graduate studies in classical piano performance, Jae directed a music school that provided lessons to hundreds of students and employed dozens of instructors in New York City. While maintaining the school, Jae apprenticed as a piano tuner/technician for two years where he serviced pianos for amateur and professionals pianists, in private homes, performance venues and recording studios.

After the school closed due to the pandemic, Jae took time to reevaluate the focus of his future work. During this period he met Jimmy Greenfield (sculptor and carpenter) who founded Soapbox Gallery, a performance/gallery space in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn; and James Carney (pianist, piano technician and rebuilder) who founded Pianoworks, a piano rebuilding workshop in Industry City, Brooklyn. Soon after meeting Jimmy, Jae became the piano technician for Soapbox Gallery, and in exchange was able to use the space to teach lessons. Eventually in 2022, Jae moved into the second floor space above Soapbox Gallery and A4 Collective was born.

The culmination of years of training, A4 Collective reflects Jae’s various explorations of the piano, as well as his desire to broaden the reach of classical music. Recognizing the value of building communities, Jae envisions A4 Collective as a space beyond the pendulum of work and home, where people can meet, exchange ideas and grow through the context of music and the piano. Driven by the belief that music is meant to be shared, A4 Collective welcomes you.
