Dhyani Gylling enjoys a versatile musical career with solo, chamber music, and orchestral performances worldwide. From early music performances on historical instruments through collaborations with contemporary composers, Mrs. Gylling strives to reach artistic beauty and harmony, exploring the full sound spectrum of the violin.
Mrs. Gylling started her violin studies at the tender age of 7 with Pavel Feldman in Montreal, Canada. At the age of 16 she and her family relocated to Salzburg (Austria) as she was invited to study with the famous pedagogue Igor Ozim at the Mozarteum University. She holds a Master’s Degree in Violin Performance from Yale University, where she was a recipient of the Denis Adams Scholarship, the Phipps White Scholarship, and the Broadus Earle prize for “outstanding violinists” while studying with Hyo Kang. She also holds a second Master’s Degree in Violin Performance from the Paris Conservatoire, under the tutelage of professor Michael Hentz and is now pursuing her Artist Diploma. Mrs. Gylling furthered her musical experiences by taking part in several international music festivals, including the International Mozarteum Summer Academy (Austria), the Music Academy of the West (USA), the Vermont Mozart Festival (USA), and the Encuentro de Música Festival in Santander (Spain), to name a few.
