Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
We specialize in stringed, orchestra instruments, i.e. violin, viola, cello, and bass. We also have a large selection of vintage electric and acoustic guitars and basses for sale at a partner location, but we recommend calling us directly since our inventory is constantly changing! If the instrument is not in stock at the time of your call, we can work with other companies or wholesalers to try and find what you are looking for with fast turnaround time.
We offer lessons at one-hour increments with the consideration that our instructor may arrive 30 minutes early or late due to traffic and travel delays (i.e. lesson is scheduled for 4:00 pm and may start as early as 3:30 or as late as 4:30). Please be sure to factor this in when planning for your lesson. For new clients, we always suggest starting with a one-hour lesson. This does not mean we are limited to only a one-hour time slot and the first lesson will usually be longer. In addition, we offer group lessons or back-to-back lessons among siblings. We are also available for extended-length lessons to help our student prepare and succeed at their upcoming performance or competition.
Yes! We are happy to come to you even if you are located outside of our covered area. Depending on your location, we will calculate a travel fee for our time and mileage. This will be agreed upon and paid prior to confirming your in-home appointment or consultation. If you are interested in having recurring lessons, we will come up with a set travel fee that will be included in each lesson. This will be paid each time in addition to the standard lesson rate.
All of our instruments and equipment can be rented for short-term use. We do have select inventory available that should primarily be used for displays, movie sets, or prop use. These items are not professionally setup so the expectation is that the instruments may or may not be playable. Call or email us for availability on specific items.
Most of our orchestral instrument are fully-carved, spruce tops with ebony fingerboards and fittings. We have student models and professional models available within any budget.
