I can not say enough about Dominic and his team at City Strings & Piano. His staff is absolutely amazing and have taught my 10 year old son how to play violin. If you or someone you know is looking to learn or advance their musical knowledge then look no further!! City Strings & Piano is the only place to go. I sincerely mean that.
