Shu began playing the piano at age 6 because her parents wanted her to become an anesthesiologist. During medical school at NYU, she continued to play Chopin, then choreographed a Chinese fan dance (performed by the second-year medical students), and still managed to graduate. Whether in medicine or on stage, effective communication can save a life if not the World, and words alone may not be enough. Music is another language and therefore another tool.
During her free time, Shu enjoys riding at Turtle Bay and winning the respect of the horses through song. Her own works in progress include Franz Liszt’s Liebestraum No. 3 and Aloha Oe. At the Chuck James Music School, she hopes to inspire others in their journey to find the authentic voice. But let’s have fun too along the way!
