Brenna Wee was awarded a full scholarship in 1981 to study at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide and graduated with a Bachelor of Music (Honours) in Piano Performance. Her teachers included Noreen Stokes, Stefan Ammer and Clemens Leske. Brenna also holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (National University of Singapore) and the Licentiate of Music Australia in Piano Performance. 
 While she was in Adelaide, Brenna was conferred the Australian Music Examination Board Award for being the highest scoring pianist in the Grade 8 examinations and received numerous commendations at major competitions, such as the prestigious Australian Society of Keyboard Music and the Diner’s Club International Piano Competitions. She was also invited to perform in concert series organised by the Australian Society of Keyboard Music and the University of Adelaide.

 Always interested in expanding her musical horizons, Brenna moved to Perth in 1991, where she studied with Keith van Geyzel and Mike Nelson at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), majoring in Jazz/Contemporary Piano. A prolific period ensued in which she worked with various jazz ensembles and as a soloist. Highlights included playing at the York Jazz Festival (Western Australia) and the Summer in the Park Jazz series in Perth. She also continued to work concurrently in the classical arena, including being the Official Accompanist for the Wanneroo Eisteddfod, the repetiteur/orchestral pianist for Opera Piccola and the accompanist of the award-winning Mercy College Senior Choir, amongst others.

 Since relocating to Melbourne in 2003, Brenna has established herself as an accompanist, chamber musician and teacher. Recent highlights included accompanying soprano Joanna Cole in the Quadrangle Series at Anlaby (South Australia), touring regional Victoria with the George Dreyfus’ Film Orchestra and being featured on Radio 3MBS FM in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. 

 In 2009, Brenna completed a Master of Music Studies (Performing/Teaching) and in 2010, a Master of Music Performance in Collaborative Pianism at the VCAM, University of Melbourne, scoring Distinctions in Performance, Pedagogy and Research units. As a natural complement to her research on the impact of globalization on Australian contemporary art music, Brenna started Bridges Collective, which seeks to perform cross-cultural/cross-genre chamber works. It also seeks to be an ambassador for Australian composers into the Asia-Pacific region and to perform works by Asian composers in Australia. This is aimed at facilitating cultural exchange through music-making and bridging the gap between cultures. She has been featured on ABC Radio Australia, Vision Australia Radio and 3MBS FM Radio to speak about the Collective’s Encounters Project to Malaysia in 2012, where members of the Collective engaged in a musical exchange with students, composers and educators at UiTM and holding concerts where works by influential Australian and Malaysian composers were featured.
