Course Description

Students may select, based on experience level, one or two-weeks of instruction to deepen their knowledge in set-up, explore sound adjustments and minor repairs in this hand-on workshop. The fundamentals as taught by Mr. Morris in Set-up, Part I will be reinforced and expanded upon and will include dressing an ebony violin fingerboard and making a new upper nut. In addition to fitting a new sound post, bridge and tailpiece etc., Mr. Wiessmeyer will demonstrate to the class the techniques at the bench required to perform the above mentioned procedures and minor repairs including the proper gluing of seams and basic violin maintenance. Detailed attention is given to sound adjusting and problem solving. You will receive daily one on one guidance and instruction.
Open to students who participated in Basic Set-up I and Tool Use or students with previous repair experience.

Classes meet from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with open workshop hours from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Materials and Tools
One or two of the following instruments with ebony fingerboards: 4/4 violins, five string violin (preferably never set up). Two sets of fittings per instrument.

Thanks to the 2016 donation of tools in memory of a past participant, Adrian Teuscher, the Institute has a limited supply of tools to supplement tool box rentals.
