Renowned violinist Cho-Liang Lin gave a master class at TNUA’s Department of Music on November 6, offering students one-on-one instructions on the skills of playing the violin. 
Prof. Lin, currently a member of the faculty of The Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, explained in detail how to play J.S. Bach’s “Partita No. 3 in E major, BWV 1006,” E. Grieg’s “Sonata No. 2, Op. 13 Movt. I Lento doloroso - Allegro vivace,” and S. Prokofiev’s “Sonata for 2 Violins.”
He told the students that they should practice as much as possible and seize every opportunity to perform publicly, regardless of the sizes of the concerts. This is a way to build up one’s experience, as practices and actual performances are considerably different.
Asked how he would choose his violin bows, Prof. Lin said that he has developed since childhood a habit of playing a violin with different brands of bows. He said any bow that can bring out the best of a violin is a good bow, and there is no reason to stick to a single brand of bows for a specific violin.
Talking about how musicians should prepare at the last moments ahead of a concert, Prof. Lin said that before going onto the stage, the musician must spare enough time for dressing up, doing some practice, calming down and freeing himself or herself from any interference. 
He said the performance on stage is meant for each and every member of the audience, and the musician must convey to them what he or she wants to convey through the musical expressions.
