Weiping Lin won several national violin competitions in her native country Taiwan. She moved to Austria at the age of fifteen to continue her music studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna with Josef Sivo and Dora Schwarzberg, as well as in Graz with Yair Kless. In the following years Weiping Lin received scholarships from the Alban Berg Foundation Vienna, the Aspen and the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festivals, as well as the Sommerakademie Salzburg. These scholarships allowed her to attend master classes with violinists such as Zakhar Bron, Klara Flieder, Philippe Hirschhorn, Valery Klimov, Igor Oistrach, Igor Ozim, Gerhard Schulz and Abram Shtern. These studies led to prizes at international violin competitions e.g. the Lipinski-Wieniawski in Poland and the Johannes Brahms in Austria.
