Violin making has been in Rockville resident Rich Maxham's family for five generations.
"My great-great-grandfather had a shop in Erie, PA," he says, "and I was inspired by my grandfather and inherited his tools and books."
Maxham began playing the violin at age 3, and was first chair in the orchestra at St. John's College in Annapolis. After graduation, he apprenticed with a violin maker in Lynchburg, VA, for a year before landing the position at The Potter Violin Company in Bethesda.
"I'd heard a lot of serious players talking about Potter's, so I knew it was very well regarded," Maxham says. "Violin making is something I want to do, and working here, with the exposure to all the instruments that come in, is an education in itself."
