Born in Hangzhou, China, Shui is the son of a doctor and a banker. He began his musical studies on violin, but the Cultural Revolution interrupted his violin studies, and a subsequent football injury terminated his violin studies. At the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music, he focused on conducting and composition, and worked regularly with the Beijing Symphony Orchestra. He continued his musical studies in the USA at Boston University and Tanglewood, where his instructors included Michael Charry, David Hoose, and classes at Tanglewood with Leonard Bernstein. He served as an assistant conductor with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and associate conductor with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
