I teach designing and making fine violins on request.
In 1997, I gave a master class in Italy, at the School of Fine Arts and Crafts in Pieve di Cento, Ferrara. From 2006 to 2009 I taught violin making at Daikanyama Academy of Music in Tokyo, at the department of violin making.
A complete course takes approximately 200 hours. For example, if working one day a week, you will finish a violin or viola, including a basic varnish, in 33 days. Trainees are required to purchase their own materials, strings and accessories as well as necessary carving tools.
A class costs € 50 per hour, incl. VAT.
After finishing a first instrument, trainees who want to build more instruments, are welcome to use my workshop at the daily rate of € 96.80, incl. VAT.
