Baichuan Hui started playing piano at four years old. At age 12, she gained a place at The Middle School attached to China Conservatory, studying with Professor Xiaoxue Hu. This involved moving from her home to live and study in Beijing. During her six years of study there, she held many solo recitals and concerts in Beijing, Shijiazhuang and Ningxia. Baichuan has participated in international festivals and masterclasses as both a soloist and chamber musician, including masterclasses with John Thwaites and Meiting Sun.

Baichuan was successful in gaining a place at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) and an ABRSM full scholarship to study for the degree of Bachelor of Music with Professor Aaron Shorr. As an undergraduate, she performed as a soloist in concerts in Scotland, as well as collaborating with other musicians. She also developed her virtuosity and experience as a musician through participation in masterclasses with Steven Osborne, Roy Howat, Ashley Wass, Dina Yoffe and Cristina Ortiz.

In 2017, Baichuan was awarded a full scholarship by RCS Trust to undertake a Masters qualification in Music at RCS and, thereafter, she was awarded an Artist Diploma in 2021 under the guidance of Professors Aaron Shorr and Fali Pavri. In 2019 she was awarded a Diploma in Piano Teaching by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

Throughout her post-graduate studies Baichuan has been fully committed to developing her professional and academic skills as a musician. She successfully secured a place on the Doctor of Performing Arts (D.Perf.) programme in 2021, jointly supervised by RCS and the University of St. Andrews. Her doctoral studies explore ideas of freedom and resistance expressed through the music of Jewish composers suppressed by the Nazi regime during the Second World War and subsequently neglected in the classical repertoire.

As a soloist and collaborator, Baichuan has performed in Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, Beijing, Xuzhou at venues including the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, House for an Art Lover, Glasgow; Ningxia Theatre and Steinway Hall in Beijing. She works with contemporary and experimental composers and has performed at Hidden Door Festival 2022 . Baichuan has won several competitions, including the Agustin Aponte International Music Competition (second prize), RCS’ highest award for performance, 7th Shenzhen Piano Open Competition and Jock Holden Memorial Mozart Prize (first prize).
