Whenever I go to CK Violins to get something fixed or to purchase a violin, they are always welcoming and the service is impeccable! They make beautiful, well-priced violins, violas, and cellos, and I always recommend them to people looking for a new instrument or if they need something to be checked. I've gotten three violins from CK Violins, and they have all lasted for a time worth the (reasonable) price that I payed for them, and they were all of great-quality! I definitely recommend CK Violins for your (string) instrument needs!
I've had my viola from CK for over a year now and just got it tuned up. Nicholas is a very friendly, knowledgable guy and my experience every time I've walked through his doors has been very positive. To me, one of the most helpful aspects of his shop is the fact that he himself can play violin/viola, so I can listen to what the sound of the instrument is from the listener's perspective.

We are so lucky to find Jean-Michael as my daughter's violin teacher. He is so patient with students and jumps to action to correct her errors. Thanks to his help, everyone around my daughter was stunned by her improvement in violin skills in such a short time. He also makes learning the instrument an interesting part of my daughter's life. Practicing the violin is not a torturing time, but an enjoyable moment for her! We highly recommend him for the students who are still searching for a great violin teacher!
Mr. Jacquon is an amazing, patient, and talented teacher! From the first lesson my son was able to play the violin. We began three years ago when my son was seven and Mr. Jacquon's hands-on style for teaching and reading music has been so good for him. Anyone who wants lessons would benefit from coming here, whether playing for fun or auditioning for symphonies. I'd recommend Mr. Jacquon to anyone interested in violin or viola.
