Paul Schuback was born in Barbados of the British West Indies. At the age of seven, he was living in Geneva, Switzerland, where he first began playing the violin. By age nine he had begun playing the cello in Paris, at the Rudolph Steiner School. He continued playing through high school in various groups and youth orchestras. At the age of fifteen Paul started an apprenticeship with René Morizot, the only violin maker of the famous bow making family in Mirecourt, France. After three years, he went to the Mittenwald School, in Germany, for graduate work with Hern Hornsteiner and then returned to France for bow making with the Morizot frêre.
