Beginning on his own in 1978, Aniano continued studying bowmaking with William Salchow in the early 1980’s. Since 2002 he has worked with the renowned Yung Chin, whom Aniano considers his principal teacher and mentor. He won prizes at the VSA, including gold medal for a cello bow in 2006 and a viola bow in 2010. This bow is his personal model, inspired by Pajeot. The stick is strong and has spring, pulling a focused sound from the instrument.
