She began playing the flute at the age of nine, and one year later gave her first public performance with the Chongju Chamber Orchestra in Haydn’s Concerto in D Major. She began her professional solo career in Korea when she was 14. At 16, Ms. Choi came to the United States to attend the Curtis Institute of Music. She studied with Julius Baker for four years. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Curtis and a Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School, where she studied with Jeffrey Khaner. Later she studied with Thomas Robertello.
