Last week me and my husband went to Olaf’s shop in Brisbane to buy a violin for our 11 years daughter. Choosing and playing violins from Olaf’s excellent range was a great experience for our daughter and his intimate knowledge and experience of all the instruments he sells is second to none. he is just perfect person for who looking for violin maker, repairer or seller.
I want to Thank Olaf for the advice and vast knowledge on choosing the right violin for our daughter. The violin is playing just as beautifully as the day we purchased it and with that and Olaf’s excellent service in mind I’d highly recommend The Violin Studio. I am impressed with his kindness, great service and professional mind. Chloe I set up The Violin Studio as a 'by appointment' violin shop, because there are plenty of walk in shops around and it is important to me that I can give you the time you deserve.
Olaf has a thorough understanding of what a violinist requires in terms of playability, and brings out the best in the instrument.
