A good body posture leads to a better performance. Gwendolyn was forced to work on her posture as she suffered from muscle imbalance and her career and health were at risk.
Gwendolyn Masin is one of today‘s significant concert violinists. She is descendant of a lineage of classically-trained musicians and remembers playing violin as naturally as having a conversation when she was a child. She has been a regular guest on TV and radio shows and has performed to critical acclaim throughout Europe, Russia, South Africa, the Middle East, and North America as a soloist with renowned orchestras and as a chamber musician. Masin holds degrees with highest honors from the Royal Schools of Music in London, England; the Hochschule der Künste in Berne, Switzerland; and the Musikhochschule in Lübeck, Germany. She is Professor of Violin Studies at the Haute École de Musique de Genève, Switzerland, since September 2013. Masin is also greatly involved in curating and producing music festivals. Most prominent for Masin is her role as Artistic Director of GAIA, an annual festival held in Switzerland, recognized as one of the country‘s most important.
