Don’t let Covid-19 keep you or your child from advancing as a musician. Read more.

A mediocre instrument can hinder you from developing your talent.

Throughout the journey from beginner to professional musician, matching an instrument to your rapidly changing skill level can teach and inspire you. Even musicians with decades of experience are frequently astounded by the difference the right instrument can make in their playing ability.

Unfortunately, many musicians never get the chance to find out what they could do with the right instrument. When musical potential is stifled by a poor quality instrument, it discourages them from practicing and improving their technique. They often give up when what they really need is to be matched with the instrument that will unleash their potential.


Upgrading your instrument ushers in a series of revelations.

“The first time I drew the bow across the strings, I heard the sound I’d tried to make for years reverberate in the air….Ah, so that’s what that sound feels like.”
