Shop Reopening Guidelines


As we resume business operations, the health and safety of our customers and our staff is paramount. As such, we are adopting new health and safety measures for all future appointments.

The following changes are effective immediately. Please call us directly if you have any questions.


•  Appointments are required.  We will not accept walk-ins.

•  Instrument trial appointments are maximum of 50 minutes. Only the player trying the instruments is permitted to attend the appointment, or the player and one parent if the player is a student. 

•  Customers will be required to fill out an online health and safety questionnaire approximately 24 hours of the appointment date which will be emailed 1-2 days prior to the appointment.

•  Customers are required to wear a mask.

•  Upon arrival, customers will be directed to specific waiting areas within the shop to ensure appropriate social distance.

•  For instrument trials, please bring your own shoulder rest, bow, and any other accessories you are accustomed to using.

•  For instrument repairs, please take your case home with you. We are no longer able to keep customer cases in the shop.

•  Contact free payment is preferred (Venmo, Pay Pal and Apple/Google Pay etc.)

•  For the safety of all, customers will be directed to use the building’s restrooms.


We will continue to update this entry as New York State updates the reopening guidelines for New York City.

Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you!
