We took my daughter’s flute in for a tune up, clean up and spring repairs; they were prompt, professional and knowledgeable. The flute is working beautifully and filling the house with wonderful music!”

Full Staff went out of their way to open their doors to our family on Christmas Eve so we could fix a broken violin string in time for our caroling tradition. We were so grateful for the staff that is truly full of warm generosity! Highly recommended for service and quality. Thank you for your help!”
