I am treasuring the great opportunity to study this summer with violin maker Juan Mijares (mijaresviolins.com) of Colorado Springs. There is no better way to learn, in my opinion, than through one-on-one, hands-on private instruction.
My lessons with Juan, who is such a knowledgeable teacher, have been invaluable. I am learning so much. I am also seeing that if I were to establish a career making violins in greater numbers, I would need full-time training to really master these skills. One weekly lesson and a couple hours of practice each week are not enough.
