Our instructors have spent decades learning the fine art of making and restoring stringed family instruments and bows. Some have entered the field through playing, while others from various technical fields. All are accomplished artists in their own right and many are award-winning makers, some having received recognition in competitions with the distinction of Hors' Concours from the Violin Society of America. This is an important honor received after having earned three gold medals in VSA International Competitions. This qualifies the honoree to judge competitions making them an excellent resource for information. We hope to pass their extensive knowledge and experience on to you, our next generation of makers and restorers, through demonstrations, instruction, and professional example.
Because our instructors are active within the industry, it may be necessary for them to bow out for a season. Many of our instructors have returned to teach workshops while others are active with the VSA fulfilling their elected duties for upcoming competitions and conventions in November. Check the site in mid-November for the 2024 Schedule of Workshops.
Registration opens November 15, 2024. Thank you for your continued support.
