Mr. Bozman is an accomplished cellist. Along with exceptional customer service, he offers stringed instruments and accessories for sale and rent. He is a noted luthier, talented in repair and restoration. He will consider trade and consignment. Mercury Fine Violins is conveniently located in Tidewater Hampton Roads Virginia.

While at James Madison University and the University of Iowa, Mr. Bozman studied performance and music pedagogy. During his work with Baltimore Symphony Orchestra principal cellist Mihaly Virizlay, he took a three year course of study in instrument repair with Baltimore luthier, James Cox.

After his apprenticeship, Mr. Bozman applied his trade in Baltimore. From 2000-2003 he served as a repair technician for the Potter Violin Company, further developing his skills in the environment of a larger violin shop.
