Art, Science, Workmanship

It seems that in our contemporary world, a great conflict has arisen between the art and its deserving and respectable dignity; which many various facts have fueled this matter. The art of creating violin, like other arts, is not immune to this problem; remaining pathless even before reaching its apogee, and if not in a declining flow, not in its uptrend either!

Our community, far from any harmful thought to the distinguished art of creating violin, pursues its responsibility as a creed, and tries to endue this art both to the students and to the future generations, not by teaching the numerals needed to make, but only through developing and deepening the wisdom and intellectual abilities. Accordingly, before any demand for entry into the community, it seems to be necessary that the person has come up with an answer to the fundamental and important questions, such as...
