The smallest Luthier shop in Southern Alberta. Making, restoration, and maintenance for violin family instruments.
A short pleasant drive south of Calgary to the Town Okotoks. Tyler Langdon operates a small luthier business, specializing violin, viola, cello and double bass construction and care. Customers come from all over western North America for repairs, maintenance and a selection of new and restored instruments, and bows.
I first picked up the violin at the age of five, and studied the Suzuki method. It was a terrific introduction to music and fostered a great love and appreciation for music. I’ve been involved with orchestras, bands, and chamber groups since my early teens and currently play the viola in a quartet and civic symphony. My focus has become the creation of new instruments inspired by the great master violin makers, that fill today’s concert halls and fit the requirements of players.
