Lynn Kohn began studying piano at the age of five with her identical twin sister. Soon there were two pianos in the house and duets and two piano music became the focal point of her musical family. She and her sister studied piano throughout their early years and childhood. High school included singing, accompanying, music festivals and a few piano competitions. Lynn received a scholarship in piano performance to Western Washington University where her studies progressed with Dr. Edwin LaBounty. During college and beyond, Lynn and her sister performed two-piano music throughout the Puget Sound area including with the Olympia Symphony and the Tacoma Symphony. Lynn received her masters in performance at San Francisco State University with Carlo Busotti. She was very involved with the Suzuki Piano Program there and eventually became the assistant coordinator for 80 children.
Lynn's goals as a piano instructor is to bring both musical enjoyment and knowledge to the student. She believes that piano creates the foundation for all forms of music and also with it a discipline which lends itself to all aspects of life. She works to instill in the student a love of music and the skills needed to both play the piano well and carry that knowledge to other instruments.
When not teaching or playing the piano, Lynn enjoys spending time with her husband and two children.
