Dhyani Gylling enjoys a versatile musical career with solo, chamber music, and orchestral performances worldwide. From early music performances on historical instruments to collaborations with contemporary composers, Dhyani strives to reach artistic beauty and harmony, exploring the full sound spectrum of the violin.
Dhyani 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 the Yale School of Music, 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 an Artist Diploma from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, under the tutelage of professor Michaël Hentz. During her years as a student, Dhyani 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), the Encuentro de Música Festival in Santander (Spain), and Les Étoiles du Classique (France), to name a few. A winner of the Harriet Hale Woolley Award, Dhyani held an Artist Residency at the Fondation des Etats-Unis in Paris from 2021-22. Now based in Finland, she currently holds the position of Sub-Principal Second Violin for the Oulu Sinfonia.
Dhyani Gylling also enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for music with eager violin students of all ages and nationalities. Her teaching philosophy focuses on guiding students through the technical and interpretative principles of violin playing, while allowing them to develop individually into their own sense of style and expression.
