Class Act: Bruce Lin’s ‘joy is beyond words’ when his students succeed

Any pianist would have been hard-pressed to squeeze an entire rendition of Chopin’s Minute Waltz into the fleeting interval between Dr. Bruce Lin’s arrival at Amarillo College and when he actually began powerfully impacting students.

As segues go, it was Flight-of-the-Bumblebee seamless.

Seriously though, Lin hit the ground running at AC, and there is no denying his meteoric rise since joining the music faculty in 2020; for in two short years the adroit pianist soared to the rank of assistant professor and captured the College’s most prestigious faculty accolade, the John F. Mead Faculty Excellence Award.
