"I have been privileged to study with many great teachers, including a student of Ysaÿe, two different concertmasters of the Toronto Symphony, and many wonderful internationally known chamber musicians.
In my book, Lynn is top notch!
Lynn can meet you no matter where you are in your technical and musical education and development, professional or amateur, and get you to your next level. If I were you, I would love to have Lynn by my side in advance of auditions, performances, etc."
John Soloninka Amateur Violinist, Canada
“Dr. Lynn is not only a great violinist but clearly puts a lot of thought into her teaching!
Through our lessons, Dr. Lynn has helped me to play with more clear musical phrasing and to add more drama to my playing.
Dr. Lynn is a hard worker, an extremely generous person, a supportive teacher, extremely knowledgeable with all musical styles, and a highly experienced performer and teacher!
I highly recommend Dr. Lynn to everyone!.”
Diane Cohen Asst. Principal First Violin, Memphis Symphony and Violin Educator, USA
“It was very motivating to be part of Dr. Lynn's violin studio. Following her advice took my performance to a higher level. In fact, I was recently accepted by two of the most prestigious Canadian music institutions.
Having the chance to work with someone who has a leading role in one of Canada’s renowned orchestras, was very helpful. She provided the most up-to-date hacks and practice tools.
If you want to have fun and reach a higher level in your interpretation, you should definitely study with Dr. Kuo.”
Yanet Campbell Royal Conservatory of Music Student, Canada
“I have played orchestral excerpts for plenty of concertmasters and mentors in the past, but Dr. Lynn exceeded my expectations.
She is an exceptionally experienced musician and stood by my side during my audition preparation process: she clearly put a lot of effort into our lessons, 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 that I've had, I found working with Dr. Lynn one of the most positive experiences that I've had."
Colleen W. Freelance Violinist and Educator, United States
"Dr. Lynn Kuo is a positive and enthusiastic teacher, whose artistry, analytical style, sense of humour, and engaging approach to teaching, was most welcomed during our lessons."
Andrew Kizas, PhD. Director, Regional Strings Program, Port Credit Secondary School, Canada
"I’ve come away with new ways to approach and teach important violin techniques and am inspired to practice and perform!
My detailed lessons with Dr. Lynn pushed me to listen and analyze music on a deeper level.
Her positive attitude really inspired me and her feedback helped me reach new goals."

Work with a dedicated coach who cares about you and your musical success.
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 the 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.
