I am very passionate about violins, and have always wanted to make my own, and have dreamed of making a masterpiece like any other violin maker, but how do I get started?
I see that there are the Chicago School of Violin Making, and the Salt Lake City one, which is the best to enroll in?
And what are ways I could prepare? I have no experience in woodworking, but I learn quickly when I devote myself to something. I am a hands-on learner, and when someone physically shows me something it makes sense, but learning from a textbook is very difficult for me.
Can any makers or aspiring makers give me advice and tell me about how to get into the field?
