Noemi Guitars
Noemi Schembri

In 2011 Noemi left Italy with all she had to go to Canada to follow her dream: to build guitars! She took the Sergei De Jonge’s guitar-making course and after that she remained beside him as his apprentice. At the end of 2011 she went back to Italy to start up her own shop and to exhibit her instruments at guitar shows. In 2014 Sergei called her back to Canada to be his assistant. Noemi built classical and steelstring guitars and improved her craftsmanship day by day to build good sound and very comfortable guitars to play.

There is nothing better than to express my ideas to and to see my dreams materialize.

“From the inception of an instrument, beginning with the design, I evaluate every single detail. I apply the same focus during construction. The woods I choose have distinct features that I always try to respect. Each time there is an exchange that influences my emotions and guides me in a unique way. Through the many variables and subtleties throughout the construction process, the instrument finally reveals its voice when it is played. This single moment is the reason I am passionate about building guitars.”
