She gave her orchestral debut with Utah Symphony under the baton of Joseph Silverstein at age 13 and was admitted to the Juilliard School shortly thereafter. In 2007, she gave her piano debut recital at Carnegie Hall. 
She has garnered awards and international acclaim for her solo, orchestral and chamber music performances across Asia, Europe, Canada and the United States including Mill Hill Sinfonia (London), Haling Park Orchestra (London), Wintergreen Music Festival Chamber Ensemble (Virginia), Bratislava Chamber Orchestra (Austria), Maverick Concert (New York), Casalmaggiore (Italy), Sarasota Music Festival (Florida), Aspen Music Festivals (Colorado), Centre d’Arts Orford (Canada) and Banff Music Centre in Canada.

Sheryl currently performs with her piano quartet, the Anonymous Quartet at major venues in Hong Kong and can be heard on RTHK Radio 4. 
Sheryl began her piano studies at the age of four with Katherine Lu and subsequently with Eleanor Wong at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts prior to moving to the United States in 1993. At the invitation of the late Maria Curcio, one of the most sought-after piano pedagogues and the last pupil of Artur Schnabel, Sheryl moved to study with her in London, England in 1995. She received her formal education at Yale University where she was awarded the Hong Kong Jockey Club Music and Dance Fund for her studies under the tutelage of Peter Frankl and New York University.
