Shereen Cheong is a New York-based Malaysian pianist, composer, arranger and producer who developed a sense of music from a tender age of three. Pursuant to her classical training, she studied jazz piano with Malaysia’s jazz veteran, Michael Veerapen. At the age of 16, she was on the Sparks of Broadway Tour as a pianist with Farah Sulaiman & Friends in Malaysia.

She is a graduate from Berklee College of Music, holding a dual degree in Contemporary Writing & Production (CWP) and Music Business & Management (MBus). 

As a keyboardist/pianist, she has toured extensively with RocNation’s artist, Victory Boyd, who was discovered by Jay-Z himself, alongside distinguished icons in the music scene such as Empire’s drama series actor/singer Jussie Smollett on his “Sum of my Music” tour, Grammy-winning jazz artist Gregory Porter at the City Park’s Foundation SummerStage NYC in association with Sony Blue Note Jazz Festival, platinum selling and Grammy-winning artist Lauren Daigle, and well-known jazz artist Kamasi Washington. She has also performed at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, ESSENCE Music Festival and LEAF Music Festival, and appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America Live Show and radio station Sirius XM Heart & Soul. Shereen most recently performed and recorded with award-winning electropop/rock artist Marina, on her latest release titled “Ancient Dreams Live from the Desert” and on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. She is currently the music director, arranger and keyboardist for Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Jackie’s Boy.

As a solo artist, Shereen has released various singles and a Christmas EP titled “2512” to critical acclaim. The EP featured various up-and-coming artists and frequent collaborators like Amni Musfirah, Anthony Muthurajah, Jamilah Abu Bakar to name a few. Her 2nd EP titled “Amygdala” was released on January 7th 2022, which features her improvised compositions on the piano.

Teaching Info



I provide music lessons for both adults and children. I’ve been working with children and adults aged from 4 to 60 years old for awhile now and a good number of my students have progressed very well under my tutelage. My method is very straightforward. I tend to work with what the student finds pleasure in. Using that, I help build a technical foundation which will further enhance and excite them. My teaching style is a combination of both classical and contemporary methods. Depending on the individual, my students and I work together to make our lessons as interactive, engaging and fun as possible. It is a very hands on approach, but it is what I believe to be the most productive approach to help my students grow, understand and have a deeper love for music.

If you’re in the New York City area, private lessons with me one to one are available.

If you’re outside of the New York area or overseas, I offer online lessons as well!
