Lisa Lin (BMus, MMus, DMus(c))
Lisa Lin was born in Taipei, Taiwan and began playing the piano at age four. She attended a music-training class at her elementary school at age seven and continued doing so until high school. She completed her Bachelor’s degree at National Taiwan Normal University and her Master’s degree at University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, majoring in Piano Performance and Chamber Music, with full scholarship.
Her teachers in various master classes include Dang Thai Son, Lilya Ziberstein, Yossi Reshef, and Eric Huebner. Her performance experience in chamber-music master classes includes Wu Han, the Calidore String Quartet, and the Karl Paulnack collaborative master class.
In March 2018, Ms Lin gave her solo piano recital at the University of Michigan. A year earlier, she played in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Mozart Piano Marathon and attended The First White Nights Piano Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia. Between 2010 and 2012, she attended The Taiwan-Japan Exchange Concerts. Additionally, she played in the Asian Composer League to assist in launching a new work by the Taiwanese composer.
Ms Lin is dedicated to teaching, having had seven years of teaching experience and having worked with students of different ages and grade levels, putting to use her diverse educational training and her familiarity with music programs that she acquired during her undergraduate studies. It is her desire to make people of any age love and enjoy music and live with it in their daily lives.
Lisa is currently studying in the doctoral degree program in Piano Performance at The University of British Columbia, where she is a student of Mark Anderson.
