Iris Lin began playing piano when she was six years old. In her high school years, Iris competed in both Kiwanis and North Vancouver music festivals. She also obtained a Licentiate Piano Diploma from the British Columbia Conservatory of Music in 2007.

During her last two years of university, she volunteered to teach piano at the Kitchener Working Centre, a project created by Laurier’s music department, which promotes giving back to the community. The volunteer experience gave lris the necessary skills to teach students of all ages and plan concert events.
