Christina Kobler was born in Rohrbach, Upper Austria in 1984. Influenced by her grandfather, who worked as a carpenter and furniture restorer in his basement workshop, Christina, at a very young age, began working enthusiastically with wood.
Music played a pivotal role in her upbringing. She started playing the guitar even before primary school, and later on she attended Rohrbach Music School for a number of years.
After meeting Martin Pühringer, a harpsichord-builder, and watching him work in the pleasant and productive atmosphere of his workshop, Christina discovered her passion for building instruments.
