The New World School of Violin Making (NWS) hopes to instill in each student the knowledge and skill needed to become a violinmaker or repairperson.
The school is located in Presque Isle, Wisconsin. The school is accepted by the Educational Approval Board of Wisconsin.
The program’s focus is on the construction of instruments in the violin family based on classical and master models and traditional hand tool techniques. Each student will receive personal attention and will work on a one-to-one or small group basis with the instructor. Students develop the fundamental knowledge and hand tool skill necessary to enter the field of violin making and repair as professionals. The graduate will be prepared for employment in an established shop where he or she can continue advanced training.
