Instructor: Robert Miller
Available throughout the weekend in a central location, this workshop will cover how to care for your instrument and what you should and should not do, as well as when to see a luthier. Subjects for discussion will include (but not be limited to): basic instrument set up, types of strings, changing strings, keeping your bridge straight, re-setting your fallen bridge, when to re-hair your bow, and how does humidity, heat, and cold affect the instrument and playability – both indoors, outdoors, and even by campfires. Participants will be able to ask questions, and where possible see demonstrations. There will also be time for practicing changing your strings and re-setting your fallen bridge.
