Alyson Montez

AlysonMontez-1“Like most violinists, I was classically trained  from the time I was a small child.  However, while I always dreamed of becoming a violinist when I grew up, I began to realize as I got older just how hard it was to be a professional musician.  I was even told by an instructor not to bother studying music in college, that I’d never make it!  Then I met Mark Wood, and his innovative approach to the violin turned my world upside-down.  Now, many years later, with a 6-string fretless and 7-string fretted Viper in my arsenal, I’m a successful musician, playing everything from classical to Latin to rock – and everything in between!  I can shred like a guitar, chop out backing rhythms and record string quartets on the same instrument, not to mention playing for hours without fatigue.  The Viper has revolutionized the violinist’s role in the music world forever, and I’m proud to be a part of this new era!
