Artist Bio:

While serving as Associate Professor of Music and Director of the Percussion Program at Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music, Ms. Wu maintains an active schedule as a marimba and percussion soloist, composer, clinician and percussion festival judge throughout the world.

As a child in Taiwan, She-e Wu demonstrated musical talent at three and a half years of age when she began piano lessons at a KHS Music School.  KHS, Kung (Contribution) Hsue (School) She (Society), translates to the phrase "contribute to schools and society" which expresses the company's commitment to enhancing human quality of life and culture. Since her beginning as a young and gifted music student, She-e has gone on to become a world class percussionist and is now once again associated with the same company that provided her first musical training. Both KHS and She-e Wu have grown together and are now working together on the future refinement of percussion instruments and activities in the percussion community.

In addition to teaching, touring, and performing, Ms. Wu has composed works for marimba and percussion, commissioned new works for marimba, released recordings, participated at numerous summer workshops and seminars, designed mallets and instruments, and also served as a judge for Paris International Marimba Competition, PAS International College Percussion Ensemble Competition, Atlanta Snare Drum Competition, PAS Large Percussion Ensemble Composition Contest, and PAS Marimba Competition.
