Rachael Lin is a respected répétiteur, associate artist and orchestral musician who is continuing her professional development at the Royal College of Music in London by completing her Masters of Performance. With support from the Youth Music Foundation of Australia, in 2019 she commenced her postgraduate studies with Niel Immelman, and is now under the guidance of Caterina Grewe.
Born and raised in Sydney, Rachael was accepted into the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Rising Stars program with Natalia Sheludiakova and in 2014 completed her Bachelor of Music (Performance) with First Class Honours. She has also been tutored by Andreas Haefliger, Aquiles delle Vigne and Ian Brown and as a soloist, has studied with Tamara-Anna Cislowska and the late Nikolai Evrov.
Rachael trained and worked as a répétiteur at The Australian Ballet, where she received The Robert & Elizabeth Albert Fellowship in 2015-2016. This led to a full-time contract with the company in 2017 where she has worked and performed with leading artists at major venues across Australia.
A passionate chamber musician, Rachael has participated in masterclasses, programs and festivals, including with the Australian Youth Orchestra’s AYO Chamber Players and at the British Isles Music Festival. At the inaugural 2014 Festival Estivo International Music Contest (Italy), she was the only soloist selected to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto with Sydney Conservatorium of Music Symphony Orchestra led by Professor Eduardo Diazmunoz.
She will also compete in this year’s Australian National Piano Award in Shepparton.
