COVID - 19 has changed the way I will be conducting business.
Until further notice:
I am currently working on outstanding projects and will be contacting clients when their instrument/bow is ready for pickup.
When picking up your equipment, a mask must be worn at all times - please bring your own mask as they will not be supplied. Hand sanitizer, however, will be available prior to entering the premises.
Anyone who already has a rental from our shop can continue to rent, trading up is still an on option. Please email me with your request and I will call you back to discuss options.
Please check back from time to time as we will continue to update our website as things progress. Emails will be answered after the September long weekend.
Thank you. Be kind, be calm, be safe.❤
Rococo Violin Shop: Luthier. A knowledge of shaping that has been passed down through the centuries. It is an art form; a meditation; a mindful practice.
The Life of an instrument and a bow begins long before a musician holds the carefully crafted finished product in their hands. It started with a seed, that grew into a tree - it was a living tree, one with breath, one with pulse, one that saw many seasons - it is the charge of the Luthier to honour the tree, to create a work of art, to breathe the life back into the wood, and to create an instrument that sings to the world.
'For me, repairing and making is a passion, I am in love with my craft, and this love demands total dedication. I only use materials and procedures that will not compromise the integrity of the art.' ... Rachele Turgeon
Owners of instruments and bows have an obligation as well: If you own a fine or vintage piece, please remember that to be an owner is to be a custodian. A custodian has a responsibility to the future generations and that responsibility is to pass on the instrument or bow in as good, or better condition that when received. Let all actions be for the preservation of the future.
