Ashley Keiko Chambers
Ashley Keiko Chambers, founder and president of Keiko Studios, music academy, is an up and coming musician who has studied classical piano for fifteen years, the alto saxophone for twelve years, and has been teaching piano for ten years.
Ashley recently received her masters in Music and Music Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. Through Columbia University, Ashley studied abroad at The Arts College at Xiamen University, Fujian Province, China, where she studied music and reflected on the ways in which culture, language, and the arts intersect in an increasingly polyglot and trans-cultural world. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Jazz Performance at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Ashley has participated as a member of the York College Blue Notes, playing as the lead saxophonist for venues such as Minton’s Playhouse in Harlem, Live at the Gantries, and performed for Steve Harvey on Family Feud and at the UniverSoul Circus to name a few.
In the near future, Ashley hopes to not only be a performer, music educator, and advocate, but to expand her music academy for adults and children to explore the importance of music and how they can express themselves through it.
