Linn Lillsunde is a violinist, pedagogue, and Timani teacher based in Paris, France. 

A native of Sweden, she studied and worked in London for many years, before moving to the City of Lights. Linn has performed and taught in many different countries on four continents.

Notably, she spent three months in the Amazon region of Brazil as a volunteer strings teacher, and has taught a public violin masterclass in Hong Kong.

Having always been fascinated by how musicians can best use their bodies while playing and singing, Linn has completed the 3-year Timani Teacher Certification training.

She is also a certified Mind Detox practitioner. 

When Linn is not having a violin in her hands, you will most likely find her on a horse!
