Biography

Tshui Fang comes from a family of musicians. She is the recipient of a series of first prize awards in national and international piano competitions, including the Beethoven (South East Asia) Bicentenary Piano Competition.

She had studied with the eminent pianist Fou Ts'ong and his wife Patsy Toh in London, Pierre Sancan in Paris, and was in the class of Jacques Fervier in Salzburg and Dichtler in Vienna. She holds a Licentiate from the Royal Schools of Music, a Fellowship from the Trinity College of Music and an Associate from the Royal College of Music.

While in Europe, she performed frequently, both as a solo and chamber musician. She continued to perform regularly after her return to Singapore. She has performed as a soloist with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, appeared regularly on the radio and television, and her love for chamber music has led to collaborations with a number of SSO musicians and internationally acclaimed artists like Norwegian cellist Truls Mork and international prize winner Turkish flautist Tatu Gilsen.

Tshui Fang has a strong interest in performing contemporary music composed by local composers and has recorded several CDs of the award-winning composer Phoon Yew Tien.

A keen and avid teacher, Tshui Fang has produced many outstanding students, many of whom were the top prize winners in piano competitions, and are now well-recognized and dedicated music educators in Singapore. She has conducted master classes and has been in the jury of several piano competitions. She has taught at the Nanyang Technological University previously and is currently teaching in the piano faculty of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.
