Thank you for visiting my website. I felt it was important to provide some information about myself and J.S. Holmes Fine Violins should you be considering working with me.
My relationship with the violin started at age 8, when I began my musical studies. Later, I developed interests in woodworking and sculpture, but the violin remained an important part of my life and livelihood. Visits to violinmakers were a fascination for me, and eventually it occurred to me that making and restoring the instruments embodied aspects of many of my interests, so I decided to pursue training in the craft.
