My name is DaVid (pronounced dah-veed) and I am what is called a “Luthier”, which is someone who makes and or restores instruments in the Violin Family. I am owner of a unique and special studio/workshop gallery in downtown Sarasota Florida. You won’t see my name on our sign, instead you will see my musical logo/symbol on the building, as we are not a common or typical retail “music shop/store”. Instead, we are a place for a one-on-one musical experience into the world of the Violin Family. My wife, Tirza and I love to spend the time and effort in getting to know our clients, and give them an invaluable experience that we don’t think they’ll get anywhere else. We also welcome those that happen to stop by out of curiosity when they see our music symbol/art piece at our studio entrance. Now we hope you come join us as we explore the Violin!
Welcome to Sarasota, where we are referred to as “The Cultural Coast”, and this experience will leave you with a sense of what the ART OF VIOLINS is all about! Our journey into the “Making of a Violin” will take you through the stages and steps that are needed to make a Violin from the beginning of when it was first a tree, and when a Luthier such as myself, will use artistry, expertise and experience to make one of the most beautiful and beloved instruments in the world; The Violin! You will learn the “secrets” of the trade that are passed down through centuries of traditions that are still being used to this very day. You will learn about the wood used to create the different kinds of violins, the importance of the wood, and the different styles/patterns that are used, plus, why they are used. You will learn about the construction of the bare and beginning stages of a Violin, and you will also learn about the different varnish techniques that are widely used, and that create different shades and colors. You will even get to take home a unique souvenir from the Violin Studio that you can treasure from your time taking our class!
