These are unique, wooden handmade instruments of my own invention. They are not traditional designs - they are designed to provide new musical functions and new sounds that are not available with other instruments. One of my aims is making it easier for people to start playing music. I create shapes that are aesthetically pleasing and bring a musician’s ear to creating an instrument’s tone and quality of sound. Whether for a beginner or a virtuoso, a well-designed and well-made instrument is a source of inspiration and motivation; it is art that inspires art.
