TVG was founded in 2014 by Dr. Immanuel T. Abraham. Administrative support comes from violinists Jasmine Reese and Chloé Trevor. Past administration has included violinist Caroline Adomeit, and violist Dr. Rachel White Galvin. These artists have worked to maintain focused content, keep highly-exclusive membership, enact new ideas, and to support the string community at large.
TVG brings due awareness to the latest innovations in bowed instruments. This includes 5, 6, and 7 stringed instruments, electric instruments, and world instruments such as the ehru, rebab, hurdy-gurdy, the Byzantine lyra, morin khuur, gudok, and octobass, daily.
Sales of all bowed instruments, accessories, and sheet music are also supported by The Violin Guild.
TVG's active membership includes 36 Grammy Award winners and nominees who interact with our thousands of university, high-school, and beginning students daily. There are masters of each genre who share their experience, recordings, sheet music, and insight with the community.
Our forum comprises over 41,400 bowed string players! It is highly informative. Inquiries from students, professionals, and self-taught artists all receive thorough and multi-sourced responses. The Violin Guild is an invaluable recourse for the string community.
