Rental Meetings

Bernhardt House of Violins makes its staff and a selection of instruments available to schools for rental meetings. Parents have found these meetings to be informational and helpful in making decisions about a string instrument for their player.

During these meetings we explain our rental plan, size students, and answer questions about string instruments. Parents may rent instruments which will be delivered to the schools before string classes begin each year.

Teacher should contact us if they desire such a meeting.

Step-up Meetings

Many students outgrow their instruments musically without realizing it. They may be aware that they are not progressing, but do not realize this may be the fault of the instrument they are playing and not their ability. When this occurs interest and performance level decline.

Bernhardt House of Violins is available to hold meetings with parents and students to give the student an opportunity to try-out higher level instruments and experience improvement in their tone and playing skills.

Teachers should contact us for more information and scheduling.

Other Services

Our store is available for field trips and our staff is available for workshops and seminars. Feel free to use us as your string instrument resource.
