Restoration, repair and adjustments for discerning players.
To me, an instrument is born at the bench but lives in the hands of a player. My approach therefore, is to serve the player while honoring the history of the instrument and the integrity of its maker.
Many of the instruments I care for are very old. Some are not so old. In either case, my role is to assure their longevity while optimizing their ability to meet the demands of a vigorous musical life.
I have been working with violins, violas and cellos for more than 25 years. I continue to be inspired by their form, history and their role in human creativity.
