Since the age of sixteen, Sharon Minemoto has been performing for audiences around the world. She is the leader of a trio, a quartet and a quintet. Her trio and quintet have each released one CD as well as recording several shows for CBC Radio. Her quartet's first recording "Safe Travels" was released in 2016.

In addition to her own ensembles, she has performed in Vancouver-based groups led by Jill Townsend, Cory Weeds, John Korsrud, James Danderfer, Laura Crema, Alan Matheson, Mike Allen, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the Phoenix Chamber Choir. Sharon has been on faculty at Vancouver Community College in the school of music since 2000.

She is the recipient of two Canada Council for the Arts grants and one BC Arts Council Grant. Her last grant took her to New York City for 4 months to study with Renee Rosnes and Kenny Werner. In 2015, Sharon teamed up with vocalist Melissa van der Schyff for two very successful concerts, one at the legendary jazz club Birdland in NYC and the other at the Abbey Theatre in Orlando, Florida.
