She received her Master’s Degree in Music Composition where she won top honors. 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 college jazz festivals and has been a clinician for top ensembles.

She has an exquisite way of playing the piano, and her compositions are appreciated by many jazz listeners. She has written and arranged compositions for many colleges and universities, and has also written and arranged for great jazz talents such as trumpeter Sean Jones, saxophonist Tia Fuller, and vocalist Dianne Reeves. Shamie was also commissioned by the Penfield School District in New York to arrange an orchestral piece and big band arrangement of her original compositions. She is also a featured guest composer and conductor for the Metropolitan State College Jazz Festival where top composers such as Maria Schneider, Marshall Allen, and Don Byron have been past featured guest artists.

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, Ralph Peterson, John Pattuci, Terri Lyne Carrington, Sean Jones, Toshi Reagan and many others.. She has toured Europe and the United States with her fiery, yet soulful piano playing and has played at many of the top jazz venues and festivals in the world.


Shamie’s debut CD entitled “Portraits” was just recently released, where her compositions and performance are to the highest degree. New York Times states “Shamie Royston’s ‘Portraits’ is a first album of elegant piano-trio music.” She continues to be a leading force and a new voice in the jazz world.
