FOUNDER OF VIOLIN WITH DR. LYNN

Assistant Concertmaster, 
National Ballet of Canada Orchestra

I'm Dr. Lynn Kuo...

I have spent 21+ years as Assistant Concertmaster of the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra and have accumulated years' worth of performance experience on three continents from inside the pit and onstage as an orchestral, chamber musician, and soloist.

 As a performer, I've given the world premiere of numerous works around the world; as an educator, I've taught as Visiting Assistant Professor of Violin at Memorial University of Newfoundland, and have been asked to teach, coach, and adjudicate worldwide.  

I know what it's like to be passionate about the violin and feel frustrated because you aren't where you want to be technically or musically, you don't feel like you're getting the encouragement or support you need, or you feel like an imposter hiding behind the instrument.

It is my mission to provide caring guidance in your journey as a violinist, to inspire you to achieve your goals on the violin and to do so within an environment that fosters kindness, encouragement and positivity.

 It gives me great joy to help you break down the process of mastering the violin and musicianship into clear and understandable concepts so that you feel more empowered and confident as a violinist and musician.

"The pandemic had turned my orchestral life upside-down.

I was struggling for focus and direction until I studied with Dr. Lynn.  

I am now able to perform with confidence and enjoyment. It has been an incredibly positive experience musically, technically and violinistically."

"I’ve had the privilege of working with Lynn, trading tips, and watching her with her students. She’s incredibly creative and manages to make it fun to work on your technique. Bravo!"

Lyka Arellano

"I'm now feeling more in tune with my body while playing. I now understand what's going on while practicing and performing.  

Before studying with Dr. Lynn it used to take me ages before I could combine technique, musicality and performance-level playing.  

Listening back to my recording, there's a huge difference in sound and relaxed-ness."

"Dr. Lynn is not only a great violinist but clearly puts a lot of thought into her teaching!

Through our lessons, she has helped me improve my musical phrasing and add more drama to my playing.

She is a hard worker, an extremely generous person, and a supportive teacher who is extremely knowledgeable with all musical styles, and a highly experienced performer!"

Alyssa Chong

"Dr. Lynn came at the right moment in my musical journey as I was struggling with performance anxiety and insecurities.  

I had never felt so centered with myself. I have been more focused in the practice room and finding positivity in my playing.  

I'm so proud of myself for being able to develop a sustainable pre-practice routine."

Freelance Violinist and Educator, United States

I have played orchestral excerpts for several concertmasters and mentors in the past,
but Lynn Kuo exceeded my expectations.

Lynn is an exceptionally experienced musician who stood by my side during my audition preparation process. She clearly puts a lot of effort into our lessons. She was always available for questions, helped me organize a practice schedule and timeline, kept me accountable, and offered solid musical advice.

I felt very cared for, which made an enormous difference.

Taking into consideration all the years of music school training I've had, working with Lynn was one of the most positive experiences.

"I have beeI have been privileged to study with many great teachers, including a student of Ysaÿe, different concertmasters of the Toronto Symphony, and many wonderful, internationally-known chamber musicians.

But in my book, Lynn is top-notch!

Lynn can meet you no matter where you are in your technical, musical education and development, professional or amateur, and get you to your next level.

If I were an up-and-comer or a young professional, I would love to have Lynn by my side in advance of auditions, performances etc...
