A native of Taichung, Taiwan, Anna En-Chi Ho has performed extensively in her home country and in many parts of the United States. Her piano studies began at the age of five as a private student of her uncle, Rev. Ching-Dao Ho, and continued with various private teachers in Taichung until 1991. After a year of academic studies at National Chung-Hsin University, Dr. Ho entered the Piano Performance program at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa in 1992 as a student of Dr. James March, graduating with a Bachelor of Music degree in 1995. Her musical studies continued with Dr. Todd Welbourne in the Master of Music program at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where she majored in Piano Performance and was extremely active as an accompanist in many instrumental studios of the School of Music.

Dr. Ho graduated with her master’s degree in Madison in December 1997, and returned to Taiwan in 1998 to take a position as orchestral pianist for the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra in Wu-Feng and to concertize as a member of the Formosa Chamber Music Ensemble. In 1999, she returned to the United States to pursue studies in the Doctor of Musical Arts program at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, where she majored in Collaborative Piano Performance as a student of Dr. William Westney. She received her DMA degree in December 2003.
