Hey everyone,

I just noticed there was a Groupon available for the website. Get $100 dollars credit for $50. I thought it might be a nice deal for someone in the market for a violin, bow or other violin niceties.

That is scary. Imagine what they are paying for the instruments to be able to offer such a huge discount....
We could never do this because of our low margins. Do the math and you'll understand why to stay clear of these types of deals. As far as the lessons are concerned, I see all the logic in the world to make such a purchase. It's a win win situation for a good teacher and a student. If the teacher is good the student will probably continue taking lessons at full price. ūüôā
When I had time to give lessons, I always offered the first lesson free. I had so many students (raised my cost to $75/hr in the end) that I didn't have time to take on more and had to give up new students.

@Fiddlerman , I was just thinking this as I was browsing their bow selection and came over to post about. If you try getting a ~$150 dollar bow, you're still paying about the same as getting a similar quality bow somewhere else.

I might still try this out if their strings are a decent price. I need some decent strings to help resurrect this Yinfente-imposter 5-stinger

I have been playing my Fiddlerman Apprentice violin for almost 6 months now, and pimped it out with some Pirastro Aricore strings to play with upgrading in small ways.  Even with my neophyte technique, it is quite interesting how different the instrument sounds.
