Learning the Art of Lutherie
My father is a hobbyist luthier, and has built 8 wonderful guitars, including the classical that I currently play (an incredibly well balanced and beautiful rosewood and spruce guitar). I was fortunate enough to learn both guitar playing and guitar construction under his patient tutelage (his patience is a continual source of wonderment to me as I am an incredibly stubborn person) prior to attending the University of Western Ontario for my undergraduate degree.
I have moved my small workshop around with me over the past several years, and have built a few guitars along the way. In 2016, I was fortunate enough to move into my own home with space to accommodate a permanent workspace. In 2022 I moved again to Almonte, ON and am in the process of setting up another permanent workshop (this time with windows!).
