Born in Denver, Colorado, Shamie Royston, pianist, composer and
educator is a unique musician in her own way. She received her

Most of her acclaim has been noted in her musical compositions as
well as her exquisite ability to teach young musicians ranging from
elementary school to the college level. She has been known to be
one of the top educators in her field at previous educational
institutions, and has been honored with awards for her teaching
skills. She has given clinics and adjudicated high school and

York City jazz scene.
She has an exquisite way of playing the piano, and her
compositions are appreciated by many jazz listeners. She has

commissioned by the Penfield School District in New York to
arrange an orchestra and big band piece of her original
compositions.
Since moving to New Jersey, she has been a steady member of the
Tia Fuller Quartet, and has played with many other great artists
such as Christian McBride, Lonnie Plaxico, Ron Miles, Ralph
Peterson, John Pattuci, Terri Lyne Carrington, Sean Jones and
