Born in Taichung, Taiwan, Yu-Ting Wu is a violinist from the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area. She began studying violin with her father at the age of four, and since the age of ten has performed regularly in orchestras. In 2008, she received full-scholarship to attend Towson University in Maryland. Working closely with student composers at Towson, a colleague, Domenic Turchi, dedicated his Sonatina for Violin and Piano to her and it was premiered in the fall of 2011. The premiere received a positive review from Baltimore Sun’s Tim Smith.

In the fall of 2012, Yu-Ting attended California Institute of the Arts to pursue her Master of Fine Arts Degree in violin performance. She was actively involved in baroque and new music ensembles, industrial rock bands, free improvisation and jazz, folk and indie bands, as well as traditional African and Balinese dances.

Well-versed in all styles of music, Yu-Ting’s playing has been described as “...absolutely sensational...egoless, and subtle.” Her musical sensibility plays to the strengths of other artists, as well as her own artistic endeavors.

    Yu-Ting is absolutely phenomenal. Not only is she an incredible violinist, she's also such a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond. I highly recommend reaching out to her if you need violin!

    What an absolute pleasure to work with Yu-Ting, she totally delivered the string arrangment way above expectations. Very talented, clear communication. 100% recommended!

    Yu-Ting is the utmost professional. I have engaged her services numerous times and each experience has been more satisfying than the last. She brings vibrancy and depth to my music that can only be provided by a master of the instrument and one with a keen, modern, and unique musical compass. Her eclectic experience makes her one of the most versatile and creative musicians I know in NYC. She is punctual in her communication and in her work; a joy to work with. As a composer and a music director, Yu-Ting is at the top of my metaphorical rolodex. She should be at the top of yours.

    It is often hard to find first class talent to bring your vision to life. Despite being in NY, I was having a hard time putting together a string quintet for a recording of my single release on a Saturday. It is easy to just pull up a sound library, but having live strings brings a new breath to a work.
    Yu-Ting was extremely easy to work with.
    You can expect a high-quality performance and level of professionalism when hiring her. I look forward to working with Yu-Ting in the near future.

    When my group first heard Yu-Ting there was a unanimous jaw-drop. Our drummer said something to the effect of "I don't know anything about violin, but even I can tell she's next level".

    For our song "Lovelight" (which you can hear in her playlist) Yu-Ting recorded six violin parts one after another with beautiful emotion and perfect intonation. What could have taken hours in the hands of an average player took mere minutes and the results are better than anything we could have manufactured with modern tuning and editing trickery.

    I highly recommend Yu-Ting for any violin project!

    I have worked with Yu-Ting for a couple of years and have found her to be a great violinist. She is not only very versatile but also has intense concentration for work so whenever I had the opportunities to work with her, it went effortlessly. I highly recommend her for any kinds of production.

    Yu-Ting is an absolute joy to work with. I've collaborated with her on a number of projects, and the thing that I've always been struck by is her depth of commitment and sincerity. I've never seen her behave as though a project is "just another gig;" she always has great feedback and will work with you until it sounds fantastic. I enthusiastically recommend Yu-Ting with absolutely no hesitation.

    Yu-Ting is amazing! She’s worked on 7 Super City tracks now and all were done quickly and sounded better than imagined. She can play anything you give to her and is very savvy to overdubs and panning.

    Yu-Ting is killing. I had her layer a LOT of violin tracks for my song. And she sounded so good. Nailed everything. Real big nice sound. It sounded like a full orchestra in the end (pitch shifted her for the cello and bass parts). She is also such a good person. We ate snacks at 7-11 after the session. Huuuuuugely recommended

    We are a film music studio based in Los Angeles under composer Federico Jusid and we have collaborated with Yu-Ting on various features and TV shows, including but not limited to Life Itself by Dan Fogelman and the movie A Twelve-Year Night. Yu-Ting is not only a brilliant violinist but also an amazing human being who's easy to communicate with. We loved working with Yu-Ting and would recommend her with all our hearts!

    I've gotten a chance to work with her in both pop and classical capacities, and her uncompromising versatility is a rare quality to find. She's professional and a pleasure to work with - happy to give my unreserved recommendation for any musical projects you need violin for!

    Very high-quality tracks and excellent/emotional violin playing skills for my remote film scoring project. I definitely recommend Yu-Ting for remote recording and looking forward to working with her again in the future soon.

    My name is Tung Chau, I am the musical director of Thuy Nga (Paris By Night) USA. Yu-Ting is a hard working individual who I have had the pleasure of working with in 2019. She is very skilful and never fails to showcase her admirable talent and skill on the violin. Yu-Ting is always consistent, whether it was for a video/audio recording or live performance. A fundamental quality which she holds is the ability to think quick on her feet and problem solve in performances. Her technique is always on point, demonstrating her experience and overall skill set. I strongly recommend her for production

    I was recommended Yu-Ting through a friend. She was very professional and was extremely easy to work with. She recorded multiple string parts for a rock song that I was producing. The sound quality was crystal clear and the playing was top notch. I highly recommend her for anybody that needs strings for their music.

    Yu-Ting is a really fun, detailed oriented, and professional violinist! She's always willing to put the extra mile to make the track sound its best, while also open to give creative input when needed. Bringing her to your projects will increase the musicality to a new level! Prepare yourself to be emotionally surprised by her performance. Bring in the Ting-factor!
