Having grown up in a family of professional musicians, Robert Cauer was already an accomplished cellist when he was accepted to the prestigious Mittenwald School of Violin Making in Bavaria. Upon graduation, he came to the United States to study repair and restoration as an apprentice to Simone F. Sacconi at the renowned workshop of Rembert A. Wurlitzer.
He established Robert Cauer Violins in 1980 and has since gained widespread recognition as a provider of fine instruments, repair, restoration, and authority to the trade. In addition to managing his business, Robert is a member of Entente Internationale, has served as president of the American Federation of Violin Makers, and is often asked to jury violin making competitions and lecture on the craft.
