The Violin Shoppe

New Shop policies and hours in this next phase of the pandemic.

We have really missed face-to-face interaction with you here at the shop! Over these past weeks. we have continued to serve our existing rental customers through phone and email contact and with curbside assistance.

We will begin reopening our showroom Tuesday May 12. but not yet at full capacity. In-shop visits will be by appointment only. Please call or email in advance for confirmation (704-373-0551 or Only one family/client will be allowed inside the shop at a time. Customers will be required to sanitize hands before handling instruments or bows. We will provide hand sanitizer. Face masks will be required by all who enter the shop. The Violin Shoppe staff will wear masks as well. Unfortunately, we are NOT able to supply face masks for our customers. We will sanitize touch surfaces between appointments and "quarantine" auditioned instruments for days before they are played by our next client.

For the remainder of May, we will be open 10 to 2 Tues-Sat. We are encouraging continued curbside pickups and drop offs. We can be available outside those hours for appointments and home deliveries as necessary. We are taking in repairs and bow rehairs with just a little longer than usual turnaround, most jobs a week to ten days.

Private instruction. We will not resume in-person instruction at the shop for at least the remainder of the month of May. Our wonderful teachers are continuing to offer virtual lessons from their homes on various online platforms. We will take another look at starting back with in-person lessons in the shop closer to month end.

We are exceedingly grateful for all of our customers and our top priority is the health and safety of your families and ours.

Welcome to The Violin Shoppe! We invite you to visit us for accessories, instrument purchases, rentals, as well as repairs. Whether you're looking for your first cello or seeking an advanced level violin to carry a student through college and beyond, you'll find we have a broad range of instruments from many makers and in all price ranges.
