Music Lessons and Instruction

Our intent is to not compete with local instructors but to work with them.  In that spirit we do not offer violin instruction on-site.  We would be happy to make suggestions so you can find the instructor that is right for you or your child.  Mark and Benjamin do offer instruction by appointment in our areas of expertise (see below).  Feel free to contact us if we can assist you in any way. 

Mark Kurkowski

Mark has over 40 years of experience as a mandolin and banjo performer and instructor.  He has studied with some of the mandolin greats including Jethro Burns, David Grisman, Mike Marshall, Don Stiernberg, Chris Thile, Mike Compton, Radim Zenkl, Shelby Eicher and tenor banjoist Johnny Baier.  Instruction available for mandolin and tenor banjo.

Benjamin Parrott

Benjamin is our master violin maker who has been making and repairing instruments locally since 1999.  Benjamin has his degree in violin building from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  Instruction available for all violin workshop procedures.

We also have contact information for many instructors in the Indianapolis area and beyond.  Contact us directly for more information or to be added to our teacher data base.
