Flushing Violin Shop

Karine Pierson is a former professional violinist and now teaches music. She owns a studio where she provides students with new and used stringed instruments, as well as repairs them and offers music lessons. She says that she has seen a lot of cheap violins advertised on personal ads.
A good way to judge the quality of a violin is by looking at its fingerboard. The best fingerboards are made from ebony, which is dark and natural in color. On a cheap violin, the fingerboard is often painted black and does not have the same depth as the rest of the fingerboard. Also, look at the feet of the bridge – if there are gaps underneath, it is likely not fitted to the violin.

This year, the Tutti chamber music collective celebrates the works of composers that are part of our local communities.
