The owner, Peter Seman, graduated from CSVM in 1988 and currently employs a staff of 10 experienced professionals, including seven graduates of CSVM. About Us

Peter Seman Peter's lifelong passion for building and playing violins began when he was growing up on Long Island, New York. A self-taught left-handed violinist, he began playing summers in upstate New York. After high school he attended the School for Fine Arts at Buffalo State College, but left school to play in a band that played traditional Bluegrass and Gypsy Jazz (Peter has been a passionate fan of St├ęphane Grappelli since his youth). Although the band was achieving local success, after 10 years Peter wanted to focus on building the instruments he so loved, and in 1984 he moved to Chicago to attend the Chicago School of Violin Making (CSVM).

Peter's lifelong passion for building and playing violins began when he was growing up on Long Island, New York. A self-taught left-handed violinist, he began playing summers in upstate New York. After high school he attended the School for Fine Arts at Buffalo State College, but left school to play in a band that played traditional Bluegrass and Gypsy Jazz (Peter has been a passionate fan of St├ęphane Grappelli since his youth).
Although the band was achieving local success, after 10 years Peter wanted to focus on building the instruments he so loved, and in 1984 he moved to Chicago to attend the Chicago School of Violin Making (CSVM). While enrolled there he also worked for several local violin shops, where he developed repair skills and learned the intricacies of bow re-hairing. After graduating the school he opened his own shop with a partner in 1989. Since then, Seman Violins has grown from the original two people to nine, all of whom have either graduated from the CSVM or are now attending it. Since settling into the store's new, larger space at 4447 Oakton St., Peter is particularly excited about the recent launch of the Seman Violins online store.
