Kenneth Cox is a violinist with professional experience in orchestral, chamber, and solo settings. Having begun studying the violin at age 7, Kenneth holds a master’s degree in violin performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and a bachelor’s degree from the Pennsylvania State University. Past teachers include Paul Kantor, James Lyon, Michael Ludwig, Davyd Booth, Helen Kwalwasser, and Barbara Lanza.
While working on his master’s degree at CIM, Kenneth purchased an old Italian violin from Reuning & Son Violins and consequently developed an interest in antique instruments. In 2008, he became a member of the staff of Carriage House Violins, then owned by Christopher Reuning. Kenneth spent nearly six years as a sales consultant at Carriage House, working with musicians to find instruments that would shape their careers. In 2014, he joined Reuning & Son Violins full-time.
Knowing the importance of the relationship between player, instrument, and bow, Kenneth seeks the best combination for every player. He relies on his own experience, as musician, customer, and performer, to make certain the final choice of instrument will satisfy his clients’ every aspiration.
