What’s the secret to making music fearlessly and joyfully? In our April 24th online workshop, Dr. Lynn Kuo—assistant concertmaster of the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra and founder of Violin with Dr. Lynn —will talk about what it means to be a “Musical Ninja”: how to harness harmony as your secret weapon in order to develop musicality.
We reached Lynn at her family home in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, where she returned as a professor in early 2020 and where she is currently staying during the pandemic-forced cancellation of the National Ballet of Canada season and of her freelance work in Toronto.
Lynn talks about her online business Violin with Dr. Lynn and Violin Bootcamps with host/business coach Tracy Friedlander.

Lynn's perspective on vanity metrics on social media
“I’m not in it for vanity metrics. Vanity metrics doesn’t mean I’m a better person. I’m a better person because I’m a better person. Period.
“What does (having more followers) mean to you? Does that mean you’re a better person? Does it mean you’re more spiritual? Does it mean you’re more generous? No, it doesn’t. Numbers do not mean anything. What matters is how you grow as a human being. So whatever number that’s attached to it… it’s not even attached to anything. So, I don’t even care what the number says. What I’m more concerned about is if I’m growing as a human being, and by extension, if people around me are growing from my influence. That’s what’s most important to me. That’s why I’m in business.
You know, they ask you: what’s your ‘why’ in your business? It’s to share! It’s to grow, to create, and it’s to connect. Those are my why’s: connect, share, grow, create.
If I can do that and earn a living, then I’ve basically fulfilled my duty as a human being.” ~ L. Kuo
