Introduction: There are two things in life that I knew that I wanted to do since I was a young girl. The first was to pursue a life of music, where I could play the instruments that I love, the Violin and Piano. The second was to share that love of music with others through teaching. Just like how my teachers helped me, I want to be a part of helping other students find their own love for music. My time in Taiwan, Germany, and the United States showed me how across different cultures, teachers approach sharing that message. I believe that my diverse background studying music in several different continents, countries, and cultures will bring a unique perspective to music that would benefit students. Whether it's violin, viola or piano, I hope to help people find their own joy in music!

I’m a college student who took piano lessons with Iris for a few months. She identified exactly where to start, knowing that I was familiar with some music theory but not the specifics of piano playing. Iris was an extremely effective teacher—she pointed me to helpful practice techniques, demonstrated sections that I found challenging, and overall facilitated my rapid improvement. Iris is friendly and I can tell she genuinely enjoys teaching/music! I would highly recommend her as a teacher to kids and adults alike.

I have in-person piano lesson with Iris for 7 months, and have a great experience. She helps me with my hand frame and finger shape. We do lots of basic technique, such as Hanon and Czerny. She focus a lot on the fundamental which is great, because that’s what I want to get better. I will highly recommend Iris if you want to start learning piano and violin.

Ms. Lin is a great musical teacher with lots of patience and passion. My kid has taken the piano lessons for 1.5 years and had great improvements. Ms. Lin knows how to keep students focusing on the lessons and has a high standard on completion. I’m glad that I found Ms. Lin as my kid’s piano teacher, and my kid enjoys a lot from the lessons.

I've been taking in-person piano lessons with Iris for about a year and a half, and have had a great experience. The teaching is completely personalized, focusing on the pupil's unique interest/weakness. She pays great attention to the small details, pointing out inefficacy where I would never notice otherwise, and suggest effective ways to improve. In addition to great teaching, she's also very courteous, accommodating, and professional. I'd highly recommend Iris if you want to start learning piano or violin.
