The Juilliard School has appointed Catherine Cho and Joseph Lin to its violin and chamber music faculty for the start of the 2011–12 academic year. Cho has been an assistant faculty member to Itzhak Perlman since 1999 and has  taught in the school's pre-college division since 1996. Joseph Lin joined the Juilliard Quartet this year as its new first violinist.

In another new Juilliard appointment, violinist-turned-performance psychologist Noa Kageyama joins the Graduate Studies faculty. Kageyama has been a presenter at the biannual Starling-DeLay Symposium on Violin Studies, and is the performance psychology coach for the New World Symphony in Miami.
