THE MAKERS' FORUM
PLATFORM DEDICATED TO THE
MAKING OF CONTEMPORARY INSTRUMENTS AND BOWS
Born in Toronto, Canada in 1972, Luke took to music at a very young age. While completing his classical piano studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music with Antonin Kubalek in Toronto, Luke began his apprenticeship in Violin restoration at Geo. Heinl & Co. Ltd., in 1991.
As a violin restorer and maker for over 25 years, he has come to treasure his experience of having handled, studied and restored many rare and important instruments from the violin family and in particular many of the treasured works that comprise the collection in the Canada Council Musical Instrument Bank.
Luke currently works out of his home-based shop located in Spring Brook, Ontario. As a semi-active musician, Luke has taken to performing with various players in Appalachian, Celtic, French Canadian and Bluegrass music circles.
