Being praised as "Piano Poetess", Cheng Wai was awarded one of the Ten Outstanding Young Persons in 2009.  Graduated early from The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) and the Curtis Institute of Music in the United States, she obtained her master's degree and artist diploma at the Yale University, and then finished with her doctoral degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.  Her principal teachers included Ling Yuan, Gabriel Kwok, John Winther, Seymour Lipkin, Gary Graffman, Claude Frank, and Gilbert Kalish.

Cheng's music travels beyond borders and has echoed all around the world, from the concert halls of the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, the United States, National Centre for Performing Arts, Beijing Concert Hall, Shanghai Grand Theatre, Harbin Grand Theatre in the Mainland to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and more.  As one of the Hong Kong's most versatile and renowned pianists, Cheng is active both as soloist and chamber musician.  She appeared with numerous orchestras including the Hong Kong Philharmonic and Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra.  Cheng performed under the baton of Gustav Meier, Lawrence Smith, Samuel Wong, Yip Wing-sie, Zheng Xiaoying, Mak Ka-lok, Hu Yongyan, Yan Huichang, etc.  She also collaborated with distinguished artists including violinists Augustin Dumay, Lu Siqing, Li Chuanyun, Jue Yao and Mira Wang; clarinetist Florent Héau; cellist Wang Jian and Chu Yibing; singers such as tenor Wai Song, sopranos Huang Ying and Ke Luwa, alto Zhang Qiu-lin and baritone Gordon Feng, and to name a few.  

Today, Cheng is the chairlady of the Central Conservatory of Music (Hong Kong) Foundation, and teaches at the HKAPA, Hong Kong Baptist University and The Chinese University of Hong Kong.  In addition, she is also a frequent adjudicator in numerous local and international competitions.  Having recently finished her 2017 "Dessiner la Musique, Cheng Wai Piano Recital China Tour' in 15 cities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region's establishment, Cheng continues to play the duet of the East and West, bringing classical music back to life, and inspiring its new generation as she shares her music and story.
