Pianist Chia-Ching Shen
Pianist Chia-Ching Shen, has performed in various concert venues in Asia, Europe and the United States as solo pianist, collaborative pianist, and chamber musician.
Chia-Ching received Doctor of Music Degree in Piano Performance from Florida State University, where she was awarded to be the membership to Pi Kappa Lambda, the National Music Honor Society. Her Doctoral Treatise “The Asian Inspiration: Chinese Influences in the Solo Piano Music of Chen Yi” had started her interest in discovering Chinese folk music. In 2012, she researched and collected over hundred Chinese folk songs while directing the initial Chinese-Music group class, the music-language class for a private-owned music and arts school in New York.
In 2014-2015, Dr. Shen is appointed as Visiting Assistant Professor of Piano at Florida State University. Prior to her current employment, she served as Collaborative Pianist at Montclair State University since 2012 and also established a very reputable private piano studio in NY. Dr. Shen believes “ Music is enjoyable for anyone with or without training. The goal of great teaching is to continuously inspire and to generously support each student to reach his or her individual potential in a lifetime.”
