Shop of Kishony
I have been a full time violinmaker since 1987, with my first shop in Long Island New York, and my current shop near Charlottesville, Virginia. Prior to setting up my own shop, my previous experiences include an internship with Mr. Andrew S. Kim, who taught at the Chicago School of Violinmaking, a job with Stephen McGhee at his restoration shop in Manhattan, and I worked with John Terry in Italy, where I was able to study the methods of the Italian School. In addition to making Violins, Violas, and Cellos, I also do repair and restoration work. Please follow the links to the left to learn more about me and the work I do, and to see some samples of my work under Instruments. I look forward to hearing from you.
