    Judy is an amazing pianist. She has the rare ability to listen closely to direction, execute, and add her own intuitive touch to the music. I hope to work with her on many projects to come. It was an honor to work with such a master instrumentalist.

    Judy Shin is an amazing musician. This is my second time using her, and she handled this job even better than she did before! She was very patient when it came to what I needed, and produced results that were just as wonderful. Her knowledge of jazz and other various musical styles is nothing short of professional. I highly recommend her.

    Judy is an excellent musician. She was prompt in her delivery and responses. Judy asked a lot of great questions to ensure she understood what I wanted and gave me exactly what I was looking for. If you are looking for a skilled, highly trained musician with a great attitude, look no further!!

Interview with Judy Shin

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  2. A: If you clearly know what you want, try to be as detailed as you can. Reference tracks always help! If you don't, that's okay. I'll help you find it. Be honest with giving feedbacks; clear communication is the key.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: Nord electro 3, Yamaha 88-key keyboard, imac (3.6GHz Intel Core i7), Komplete 12

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: Key, Tempo, Style, Reference track(s), Deadline

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I have a very good ear (perfect pitch), which allows me to learn and play songs almost instantly. Also, versatility; I've performed and recorded so many genres that I feel like a chameleon sometimes. Harmonic sensibility is my plus as well!

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: On Soundbetter, I get a lot of piano recording requests for covers and originals, to which I get to add my own twist when allowed. The twist can be harmonic or rhythmic, or really, any variation that suits the project and my clients appreciate my creativity added to their work.
