About Lindan B.
I began playing violin at age 2 1/2. I started the viola in 2011/2012 and am currently pursuing a BM at The Juilliard School, studying with Misha Amory. I am a recipient of the Juilliard, C.V. Starr, Edna M. Rossum and Ann S. Alderman and W. Harold Alderman Scholarships.
I have participated in masterclasses with world-renowned violists including Samuel Rhodes, Lawrence Dutton, Steve Tenenbom and Brett Deubner, among others. Past summer festivals include Young Artist’s Program NAC in Ottawa, Castleman Quartet Program, Perlman Music Program and Yellow Barn Young Artists Program. In 2015, I placed 2nd in the Junior Division of the ASTA National Solo Competition. In 2016, I studied with Helen Callus at the Colburn Academy under the Greendale Scholarship. My viola and bow are generously loaned by the Maestro Foundation.
I have been interested in teaching for a long time. I have taught my younger siblings since I was 11 years old, and coached young chamber ensembles since I was 13. I have given private lessons to students since I was 16. I love figuring out how each student best communicates. I constantly think about games or strategies to teach a certain technique. Whether you're interested in casual lessons or want to push yourself to the limit, expect lessons with me to be a positive, enjoyable experience!

One of my hobbies is rock climbing, so I'm thrilled to work at Central Rock Gym Manhattan. I work desk, events, youth programs (teaching kids ages 4-15) and teach private lessons.
