Sarah Bystrom

Sarah Bystrom began playing the violin when she was ten years old. She studied Suzuki and classical violin with Elizabeth Grigolite and John Reed. While taking violin lessons with John Reed, who was an instructor at the esteemed Red Wing Musical Instrument Repair Program, Sarah gained interest in violin making and repair. Over the next four years, Sarah apprenticed with Mr. Reed learning violin building and instrument repair.

A graduate of Minnesota State College Southeast Technical in Red Wing, Minnesota, Sarah specialized in violin and bow repair studying with Lisbeth Nelson Butler and John Reed. Sarah works as the bow specialist at Williams Fine Violins as well as instrument repair and set-up. As her time permits, between “Dr. Who” episodes, she fiddles as much as possible and is an avid reader.
