The Makings of a Music Master
The shop’s owner, Vahik Sahakian, was trained in an apprenticeship course in violin making at age 10 by Arakelian Sourene, author of the book “The Violin: Precepts and Observations of a Luthier.” He was recommended by the famous violin maker Henry A. Strobel, author of "Useful Measurements for Violin Makers" and several other outstanding books.
Vahik came to Vancouver in 1971 and worked at Pamus Music repairing strings and band instruments from 1972 to1978. He then established Vahik Musical Instrument Repair in 1979. Overall, he has more than 40 years of experience in repairing string and band instruments and 25 years of experience handling instrument repair for several school districts in West and North Vancouver.
