Dr. Caitlin Boyle, a Hamilton based violin and viola performer and pedagogue, began her musical training at the Hamilton Suzuki School when she was three years old. Since that time she has received subsequent training at the New England Conservatory, The Glenn Gould School, McGill University, and most recently at the University of Toronto where she researched nonverbal communication in chamber music for her doctoral thesis.

Currently a member of Sinfonia Toronto and the Niagara Symphony Orchestra, she has also performed and toured with orchestras such as the Munich Symphony Orchestra, the Schleswig-Holstein Orchestral Academy, and the National Youth Orchestra of Canada.
