I cultivated my love of repairing instruments while in college by attending summer workshops at UNH and Oberlin. After graduation from college, I worked as an apprentice for Daniel O. Smith and made my first instruments. From there I went on to work at Potter’s Violins, Day Violins, and the Violin House of Weaver. In 2018 I started my own business, Maxham Violins. I repair, restore, set up, and adjust fine violins and bows.
In the words of my great-great-grandfather, I’ve spent my life in my heart’s work.
