Dr. Lynn Kuo
I am a violinist, educator, and entrepreneur.


As a violinist, I have spent 22 years as Assistant Concertmaster of the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra and have accumulated decades' worth of performances around the globe.

I give world premieres of new works composed for me; record for film/TV; perform in symphonies, operas, and ballets; lead orchestras and ensembles as concertmaster; present chamber and solo concerts on intimate stages; and collaborate with artists presenting multi-disciplinary works.

As an educator and Founder of Violin With Dr. Lynn, it is an honour and privilege to 
coach motivated, advanced violinists from all around the world. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than to help passionate violinists achieve their musical goals and succeed as musicians.

Reviews

”It was as though Ms. Kuo and her instrument became one… She (and the music) were mesmerizing, and accompanist Marianna Humetska only emphasized the imagery. So captivating…”    
Louise Daymond

Pinawa Life, January 2006

“The solo violinist for this premiere performance was Lynn Kuo, a native of St. John’s, Newfoundland, whose virtuosity and musicianship were readily apparent throughout."

Nexus Percussion

"Her charm shone through in something as simple as a carefree twirl of her bow in anticipation of a difficult entry. Both Yee and Kuo radiate a great degree of confidence and warmth on stage."

Lynn Kuo, right now is just killing it!
 She ran her own program and is quickly expanding that to reach even more people.  

I learn new things now when I watch her Instagram posts and videos, but she has really made it her own and I now, in turn, can learn from what she's posting and I can refer people to what she is doing and I certainly have referred people to her program.

Violinist, English National Opera & Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

The pandemic had turned my orchestral life upside-down.

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

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

I've 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.

 But in my book, Lynn is top notch!

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

Dr. Lynn is not only a great violinist who is extremely knowledgeable with all musical styles, she also clearly puts a lot of thought into her teaching!

 She has helped me improve my musical phrasing and add more drama to my playing.
