I come from a family with multigenerational musical traditions, and I have always felt a connection to music. However, wen I was young, I actually had interests of more technical nature and saw my future in that. I even graduated from the Department of Mechanics at the Warsaw University of Technology.
My adventure with violin-making started when I built my first guitar. My father had it assessed by a violin maker. It turned out that the violin maker in question, Antoni Karolkowski, was delighted with its quality, and he took me under his wings and taught me the craft of violin-making from the basics.
