Transilvania ( silva ,silvae (Lat.) = forest ) is a region in Romania, well known for its rich , secular forests. A tree gets its energy from the land and the air. The Reghin area is itself an area in which you can find such forests.

My introduction with the manufacturing of musical instruments was at a very early age , as violin making was a family tradition. Since I was little I used to stand by my father while he was working on something , trying to blend in by polishing a violin , thing that made me at the age of twelve , “ very useful “.
While attending a high-school specialized in wood carving , I decided to attend the courses of a violin making school .
