Mengwei Shen has played various instruments for many years and enjoys leading children and their parents in creating memorable experiences through Suzuki and music education. In addition to training as a Suzuki teacher, Mengwei has studied Kodály methodology at New York University, arranges classical and contemporary ensemble music for church youth musicians, and recently joined the Metropolitan Orchestra of New Jersey for their season finale concert. Her performing group of students age 4 years and up can be seen throughout the year delighting audiences at parks, plazas, and other places. After an initial career in the corporate world, Mengwei left banking behind and is now dedicated to growing as a musician-educator and promoting the possibilities of childhood music education among families in Jersey City. Mengwei is grateful for the use of an antique German violin (circa 1900), fully restored by Princeton Violins.

Ming Shen has taught piano for many, many years, including to her three grown daughters. Ming is privileged to have studied with various Suzuki Piano Basics Foundation teacher trainers across the U.S. as well as with Dr. Haruko Kataoka (co-founder of the Suzuki piano method) in Matsumoto, Japan.
