Born in La Crescenta, California to musical parents, Connie Kim-Sheng began piano lessons at the early age of three years old. She performed her debut solo recital at the age of 13 and her concerto performance debut at 15 years old.
As a teacher, Kim-Sheng enjoys working with students of all ages and levels; she finds joy in the energy of children and admires the love older students have for music. Her priority is in the interest of the student and maintaining a pleasurable (yet educational!) environment for all students.
As a competitor, her awards include top prizes in the Los Angeles Liszt International Competition, the Bronslaw Kaper Awards held by the LA Philharmonic, Virginia Waring International Competition, Knigge Music Competition, and the New Orleans International Piano Competition, as well as finalist and special prizewinner at the Eastman Young Artists International Competition.
Kim-Sheng is also an avid chamber musician; she attended highly intensive programs such as Kneisel Hall and the Sarasota Music Festival where she received the opportunity to work with Seymour Lipkin and Robert Levin, among others.
Kim-Sheng has a Bachelor’s Degree from The Glenn Gould School while studying with John Perry and is currently based in Boston after completing a Master’s degree at The New England Conservatory of Music with Meng-Chieh Liu and Hung Kuan Chen.
