He studied piano under Tanya Stambuk and Isabella Jie, studied organ under Wyatt Smith, and also received coaching from Korine Fujiwara in violin.
Born and raised in Tacoma, Washington, Oudom has performed numerous classical solo and ensemble works throughout his local communities and at his educational institutions. He has experience composing music in collaboration with vocalists, instrumentalists, visual artists, and dancers, and performing as a vocalist, pianist, violinist, or a dancer in modern dance and hip-hop at various venues throughout Washington. He has also performed as a pianist for church services, and continues to accompany vocalists and instrumentalists.
Oudom began as a self-taught musician with experience in music from many parts of the world. Along with his classical training, he has a rich and diverse background in world music, such as Asian folk music, and contemporary genres like pop, RnB, and video game music. In his youth, Oudom freelanced in teaching piano lessons to children throughout his community, while learning music theory and classical music on his own. He has also dabbled in contemporary genres of music using digital audio workspaces and learning the musical aesthetics of such. Through his family and other outside sources of cross-cultural musical diversity, he has garnered extensive knowledge and understanding of non-western music with experience in learning to play the erhu and the khim, singing Asian folk and popular music, and dancing in many different styles of dance. He has also played various percussion instruments for Cambodian ceremonial dance performances.
Oudom is an advocate for cultivating a musician who is well-rounded and wants to continue their self-growth. He emphasizes technique to be able to overcome any musical obstacle, to create beautiful sounds, and most importantly, to maintain the musician's longevity for their own physical health. He believes he can help navigate rising musicians into the world of classical music with a youthful and diverse lens.
