Committed to finding your perfect match, Focusing on Contemporary Instruments
The Violin Finder will find your perfect match.
My goal is simple: help you find the one. I work directly with top luthiers and bow makers at the local, national, and international level. Makers we have collaborated with include: Joseph Curtin, David Folland, Jordan Hess, Jason Starkie, Christopher Jacoby, Andrew Carruthers, Gilles Nehr, and Éric Gagné.
Get the violin, viola, cello, and/or bow that will take your playing to the next level...
We will discuss your budget and preferred instrument characteristics. In addition, you will receive expert advice and customized suggestions on strings and accessories, and instrument set-up. Even if you have looked for an instrument before, each new search often feels like a start from square one. My role is to take in all of your search parameters (budget, playing style, preferred characteristics), bring you the best options, and guide you through determining what is the best fit for your needs. I enjoy educating buyers about the process of trying instruments and offer experienced insight to help make this an enjoyable process as opposed to an overwhelming experience.
About The Violin Finder
As a violinist, Emmanuel Borowsky has received international acclaim for performances in over 35 countries, studied with renowned teachers, and received degrees from top programs. Along the way, his lifelong curiosity for how things work has led him to undertake a journey into areas of string playing that few performers have ever ventured: the world of luthiers, bow makers, and acoustics. Through his work at the Oberlin Acoustics Workshop, friendship and collaborations with top-tier makers, personal research on the instrument/bow markets, and extensive personal experience (including having two cellists in his immediate family), Emmanuel Borowsky has become an expert in the process of finding the right instrument for the player.
