Dylan L. Kole Instruments


Dylan was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. A 6th generation roofer, he worked for the family business during the summers. A violist since the fifth grade, his interest in violin making was not sparked until after visiting the violin workshop of a family friend. Currently, Dylan is finishing his education at The Chicago School of Violin Making. His favorite part about violin making is the challenge of the fine detail work, and the never ending research to be explored. In his free time, he enjoys playing the viola, cooking for friends and family, and running through the parks.
