About Tanja Brandon

Born in Hilversum, Netherlands in 1971, daughter of the violinist and composer Nico Brandon, learned to play the violin and viola as a child. But a strong interest in building led her to become an apprentice at a violinmaking shop in the Netherlands. After two years working in this shop she went to the “Newark school of violin making” in the U.K. and completed her study with a distinction, the highest possible degree. After working for various makers she established her own violinshop in 1996. Tanja’s violins have been bought by players at every level in the profession, members of orchestras, stringquartets, session players and students at music colleges. Her instruments are played in- and outside Europe.
