About the Studios

Joseph Curtin Studios is devoted to violin-making, acoustical research, and the ongoing evolution of violin-family instruments. If you’d like to visit and play some instruments, please contact us for an appointment and directions to the shop. We are located about six miles west of downtown Ann Arbor, and a thirty-minute drive from Detroit Metro Airport.

Joseph Curtin has two full-time workshop assistants, Alex Currin and Magdalena Marino. He also collaborates extensively with a network of scientists, researchers, designers, and craftspeople. Click on the photos below to learn about some of them.
