Dr.  Yinhui “Stacy” Li started piano lessons at five and performing in public in China at seven. She earned her master’s degree in Piano Performance at Bowling Green State University under the instruction of Dr. Robert Satterlee. She further obtained a Doctor of Music degree in Piano Performance from Florida State University with the late Steinway Artist Joel Hastings and Dr. David Kalhous.

Dr. Li was a prize winner of the TOYAMA Hong Kong Piano Competition and the 2016 Florida 

State University Annual Piano Competition winner. She has appeared internationally as a soloist and chamber music musician throughout the U.S. in Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Tallahassee, Dallas; Sulzbach and Rosenberg, Germany; Corfu, Greece; Shanghai, Chengdu, Chongqing, and Guiyang of China.

In 2012, she played a series of duo concerts in Sichuan, China, to support Smile Angel Foundation, sponsored by a hospital to treat more cheilopalatognathus patients. Each of those concerts had more than 500 audience members. Besides all those performing experiences, Dr. Li also worked as a visiting professor at the Piano Department of Sichuan Conservatory of Music.

With more than 20 years of experience as a piano teacher, Dr. Li possesses a keen ability to create an exciting and entertaining yet informative learning environment. Many of her students were prize winners or finalists in several prestigious piano competitions such as The Dallas Solo Piano Competition and The Steinway Junior Piano Competition.

As a versatile individual, Dr. Li has had the opportunity to assume different professional roles, including being a private piano lesson instructor and a music camp organizer. Through these experiences, she has been fortunate enough to educate a diverse group of students aged from pre-kindergarten to college. In June 2023, Prime Music Institute was invited to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall, which made her school the first private music school in the DFW area to be invited to perform at Carnegie Hall.

Dr. Li is a Steinway Educational Partner. She founded Prime Music Institute (PMI) in Texas in 2021. PMI is the first and the only All-Steinway private music school in Texas. She currently serves as the Director and a piano faculty member at PMI.
