"My students throughout the country have been purchasing instruments from the String House for 25 years. Parents are thrilled with the quality of service as well as the value of their purchase. I love the individual attention given to each of my student's needs. At every level, students have the opportunity to choose from among several different types of instruments so it's possible for them to have the "just right" instrument. Many thanks to the Kanacks for bringing so many of my students into their family over the years!"
