What is " Music" about?
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 our focus.
Music opens a new dimension of pleasure as we master the skills of expression. Each instrument has it's very
own character of sound. We prefer one instrument or another. It is like colors we prefer one over another.
For some it is the sound of a violin, the piano, the cello or the viola. One of these inspires us to express the delicate
colors of music, the dynamics of harmonies, rhythms and counter-harmonies and more. We search to find the
perfect instrument to express our interpretation of music.
At the Professional Violins we understand your objective, as we provide you with the tools and the instrument to assist
you in achieving your musical expression. Tell us about the character and quality of sound you are looking for and we
will make the match.
|We match you with an instrument that will enable you to utilize more of your playing skills, to experience greater
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 the range of sound qualities is essential. I listen to your need, recognize your skill
level and consider your personal request. I can suggest various instruments that might be more suitable to achieve
your musical objective or you can select the instrument that pleases you best.
| We guarantee to provide an instrument that will meet with your personal approval and expectations.
