Several of our instructors have returned to teach workshops that were canceled due to COVID, while others are active with the VSA and fulfilling their elected duties for the upcoming convention and next year's international competition. For those students whose classes were canceled we hope you will be the first to jump back on the band wagon. Our classes will be smaller so please check the site often for updates and registration in late October. Thank you for your continued support.
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 to the next generation of makers and restorers through demonstrations, instruction, and professional example.
Because our instructors are so active in industry organizations it may be necessary for them to bow out for a season or two. We hope you will continue to check the website for their workshops.
