Kyung-Nam Oh

Berlioz Orchestra Conductor

Kyung-Nam Oh was born in Seoul, Korea.  He graduated from Sun-Wha Art High School and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in music from Kyung-Hee University.  He earned a Master’s degree from Ball State University with a full graduate assistantship and a Performance Diploma from Indiana University with a Dean’s Scholarship.

Mr. Oh believes music is not just sound, rather music reflects the performing player’s emotions, knowledge, philosophy and spirit.  To produce or create better music, the performer’s personality, knowledge, philosophy, and spirit should be devoted to it and the teacher has the responsibility to assist in the development of all these aspects.

Accordingly, Mr. Oh believes his role is as much as being a mentor to his students as it is in being a teacher.  With this philosophy in mind he has served as Director of various youth groups including Master’s Youth Orchestra, MYO Young Artist’s Competition, Anderson University Summer String Camp and NYLO Summer Camp.
