The Boston Herald featured our Violin Making & Repair and Piano Technology programs in a March 2019 article, including video and photos of our students creating violins, restoring grand pianos, playing instruments they’ve worked on, and describing what drew them to a career where music and hand skills intersect.

“This isn’t a school for someone who cuts corners,” author Matt Stone writes. “Every student there shows heart and dedication to their craft. With the finest woodworking tools and instructors with a wealth of knowledge, students from all over the world flock to the North End in search of a lifetime’s worth of knowledge. The waves of time have since eroded what has been left of fine craftsmanship. North Bennet Street School intends on preserving this fine and ancient craft.”
