Stephanie Firdman: Violin & Viola Instructor & Conductor of Repertory Orchestra Division - Florida Youth Orchestra

“As a string teacher in South Florida, I have known Tim Barnes for many years and feel very comfortable sending my students to him to either rent or buy instruments. He always puts them at ease about the process of choosing, renting and/or buying an instrument particularly violins or violas.

He is very knowledgeable and can answer any question that they might have. I am looking forward to sending more of my students to Tim for rentals or violin/viola purchases.”
