"Dr. Annie Lin is an outstanding pianist and has worked for several years with my students at SMU. More importantly she is a first rate musician who adds great musical insights to works she performs. Many pianists "play the notes" but, Dr. Lin is a real musical partner and a valued collaborator in the musical experience. When I have worked with her I find her musical ideas fresh and insightful. I have sat in the audience for many of Dr. Lin's performances and they are always of the highest caliber. Anyone looking for the very top level of musical collaboration could do no better than Dr. Annie Lin."

John Kitzman, Principal Trombone of Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Professor of Trombone at Southern Methodist University


"Our experiences with Dr. Lin as a collaborative pianist have been outstanding in every way! Dr. Lin has the highest professional standards that are exhibited in her extreme precision, expressive phrasing, and her uncanny ability to almost read the mind and tempi of the soloist she is accompanying. Even though my cellist son, John-Henry Crawford, has been at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia for two years, we still use Dr. Lin several times a year for recordings, competitions and recitals (they have performed together in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and Georgia.) We know we can ALWAYS count on her professionalism and being prepared for any performances. We look forward to having more collaborations with her in the future!"
