What  is  " Music"  about?     The "Magic" in Sound  Adjusting and quality  is  at Derek

 Why do we gravitate to some form of musical expression?  Is it an expression of our feelings? Is it  a
 yearning for celebration or a joyful expression? Or is it plain simple relaxation? For different people
 it can be all of these pleasures or it can be  a series of many other forms of expression. We are all
 different in the genre of music we prefer. For some it is Classical, Folk,  Gypsy, Latin or other forms
 Also the melody, the rhythm or the combination of harmonies and ornamentations are  a focus.

 At  Professional Violins we try to understand your objective, and  provide you with the tools and the
 instrument to assist  you in achieving your musical expression.   
We match you with  an instrument that will enable you to utilize more of your playing skills, to experience greater ease     
of expression. Each musician is gifted with a special talent that demands a unique relationship with his violin, viola or        
cello. This is where the expertise and experience of a professional violin maker who understands  the many intricate
nuances of each instrument and their sound qualities is essential. I listen to your request, recognize your skill  level and
provide you with a variety of instruments to test.  
We can  provide an instrument that will meet with your personal approval and expectations.
If there is a specific instrument, maker or model you prefer please let us know so we can find it for you.
