“We are excited to announce the appointment of Helen Lin as our Music teacher at Kingsgate International School. What an amazing opportunity for children to be taught and mentored by this world renown talent.”

Mr Will Ore, Head of School.

As much as we would love to list all of Helen Lin’s accomplishments, I’m afraid you would be reading for a very long time. So here is just a small taste of who will be teaching Kingsgate Kids.

Voted one of the top 8 musicians in the world by the Web Concert Hall International Competition, Helen Lin’s professional engagements have ranged from performing as a full-scholarship recipient at the Tanglewood Music Festival, Tchaikovsky Music Festival, and Wagner Music Festival, to touring as a recitalist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician in Germany, France, Austria, Russia, Italy, Spain, the United States, Japan, Korea, China, and her birth place Taiwan. Since 1996, her performances have been broadcast on television and radio stations frequently throughout the United States. The American Music Scholarship Association has made Lin’s performance of Chopin’s E Minor Piano Concerto as an educational videotape. The numerous prizes she has won have include “The Young Artist International Piano Competition”, the “IBLA Grand Prize International Piano Competition”, and the “Rising Star Concert Series Piano Competition”.

In 2015 and 2016, Helen Lin was recognised by Carnegie Hall for her extraordinary dedication and achievement in the field of teaching music and presenting students to perform at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Furthermore, she has received a diploma of Recognition from The Taiwan Ministry of Culture in recognition of outstanding musicianship as a juror, a lecturer of masterclasses, and a performer of master recital during the International Taipei Music Festival in April, 2016.

Besides her career as a concert pianist, she has been a Master Teacher and Artist-in-Residence at the Community Conservatory of Music in Doylestown, Pennsylvania since 2006. Lin served as a piano chair at Alvernia College and Albert Conservatory in 2007-2009. During her school years, Lin was the Resident Artist for Steinway & Sons pianos at Premier Pianos in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2005 and an opera coach for the Opera Department at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. There, she held students’ recitals regularly under the sponsorship of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Premier Pianos.
