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.
Kenneth’s interest in violins began at an early age as he visited his local violin shop. The history and intrigue of antique instruments was a constant point of interest as he developed as a performer. Later on, he purchased a fine old Italian violin from Reuning & Son and became fully absorbed in the world of fine instruments. He joined the team at Reuning & Son in 2008 just after earning his master’s degree, and is now entering his second decade of working with the world’s best musicians to find instruments that will shape their careers.
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.
