We have over 500 instruments from Germany, Italy, Romania, Poland, and China in order to offer each student and teacher the best possible choice in every size. We even started our own brand, created after consulting with teachers from Lucy Moses, Juilliard Pre-College, Mannes, Manhattan School of Music and School for Strings. We are the only place that offers rentals from our special collection of 150-year old European instruments from 1/8 to 3/4 sizes, in case you have a ten-year-old prodigy on your hands! I personally fit every student and help parents choose which instrument would be best for their budget and child's level. Learning a stringed instrument should be fun, not confusing or intimidating. Call for an appointment. Try some instruments and I will be happy to answer all of your questions. Leave with an instrument custom tailored for your child's size and your budget.
