Summer Violin Bootcamp 2021

July 5 - August 28th, 2021: Become a Violin Ninja in 8 weeks this summer!


"A few months ago, Dr. Lynn gave a fantastic online masterclass to my students here in Tucson (at University of Arizona).

She showed creative technical solutions, inspired new musical ideas, and most of all, she made it a lot of fun.

And those are the qualities that are foundational to her Violin Bootcamp as well.
...So sign me up!"

I'm feeling more in tune with my body while playing and understanding what's going on while practicing/performing a piece of music is my win and milestone.

Listening back to my first recording during quarantine to today's recording, and even during my recording during the Bootcamp, there's a huge difference in sound and "relaxed-ness" that I can see.

I'm pretty proud of that especially as it's becoming more natural to summon the tools and techniques to bring out in a piece compared to before where it would take me ages to combine technique, musicality, and performance-level playing.

My favourite takeaways are centering and VAPPS 😁. These two definitely helped with fixing the "robotic" feel, something I wanted to address while in the Bootcamp.

"This has been a great experience from challenging myself to play in weekly masterclasses to diving deeper into important violin techniques.

It's great to have the accountability of the group and the positive and constructive critiques from Lynn along the way.

I also got a lot out of our one-on-one sessions.

Thank you so much!"

“Sautillé has always been really difficult for me. Lynn’s basketball analogy and the idea of the down-bow being the impulse and the up-bow being the rebound has really helped me.  

During our lesson, we worked through different practice techniques that I then brought into my practicing that has significantly improved my efficiency. My sautillé is still a work in progress, but it has developed so much since working with Lynn in our lesson.”

"Lynn is the most positive instructor I have encountered in my nearly two decades of learning the violin.

Her infectious enthusiasm, supportiveness, and sense of fun was pervasive throughout the Bootcamp and its cohort of students, providing a steady stream of motivation and encouragement.  

Lynn was very well-organized and made excellent use of class and lesson time, both for the things she taught herself and for the excellent guest artists she invited to teach.  

I'd recommend the experience to anyone looking for inspiration to improve."

Lynn Kuo

I'm DR. LYNN KUO.

FOUNDER OF VIOLIN WITH DR. LYNN

I have spent 20+ 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 launched Violin with Dr. Lynn in order to serve violinists around the world who are as motivated as I am to continue learning and honing their craft.

With three performance degrees on the violin under my belt, I continue to pursue higher learning with world-class violin pedagogues in order to further my knowledge and provide excellent instruction to my students worldwide.

I coach student violinists, avid amateurs, teachers, and professionals who come from all parts of the globe: Canada, United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Philippines, etc., some of whom play professionally as principal players in the Scottish Ballet Orchestra, English National Opera, and Memphis Symphony Orchestra. 

Nothing would make me happier than to work with you to help you achieve greater success as a violinist and a musician.

Lynn is an incredibly positive, hard-working, open-minded, sensitive, and receptive musician and person. I think my biggest take-away from working together was that 'smart practicing yields smart results.'  I think I am a much better player today than I was even three months ago.
