Early in his career, owner Michael Violette noticed a few things about teaching private music lessons. Renting a private studio was very expensive and it seemed like music stores were more interested in selling and renting products than providing high-quality music education. Both of these options also meant that noise from adjoining rooms could interfere with lessons. In addition, many parents and students wanted to avoid the hassle of traveling for their lessons. So Michael, recognizing the need for a convenient, affordable way to bring music lessons to people’s homes, decided to become a mobile music educator. He quickly build a reputation as a reliable, well-schooled, customer service-oriented teacher. And thus, in 1986, String Sound Studios was born.

After a few years, he realized that many other musicians had limited access to studio space or weren’t interested in running their own business. He also couldn’t provide lessons on every single instrument, so he started to hire well-qualified music teachers on all instruments to help fulfill the needs of all potential customers. Since then, String Sound Studios has grown to include over 40 instructors on Long Island and in New York City, and has helped to further the musical careers of thousands of students.

Whether you’re just starting out or have been playing for years, String Sound Studios has an instructor for you! We look forward to helping you begin your musical journey.
