Fiddleheads Violin Studio Testimonials & Feedback: Our Site
I'm so impressed by your web site -- it's packed with info and inspires trust. I've been digging into it occasionally over the past month...
Wow, [your email] is a lot to digest at once, but it's great -- thanks for taking the time to cover all the bases. The numbers and advice are very helpful.
I really do appreciate it.

The [Fiddleheads] website, as well, is nicely elaborated, and offers information like instrument sizing criteria which is very comprehensive, useful, and helps knowing exactly what you want to ask for. [This is because] the expression "I want a violin" usually requires a bit more detail to become fully accomplished!
- Amnael Orozco, Violist, Violinist, Arranger and Concertmaster at the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, Mexico City
You do have a nice website. The pictures and stories make it feel more personal. I look forward to exploring it some more.

You are so appreciated by so very many people. :o)
- Vicky, Calgary AB
Thank you so much!! Thanks a million. Great website!!
Yes [the violin sizing advice] was a big help. I will be purchasing string supplies when I get organized. I am a trumpet player and band director. The whole string thing is a little overwhelming. You guys are so talented I admire string players so much. Thanks again!

Just wanted to say that I think you have a great method and site!
I am a part-time music teacher who travels to clients homes and have been browsing around the net for a long time to find some inpirational reserach and book suggestions and yours is it!
Thank you! Incidentally, do you mail to Ireland? [YES! Fiddleheads ships to customers around the world]
- Grace, Ireland
Love this site. Just found while searching for an 1/8 violin for my student. My grandparents were Canadian. John Livingston, the naturalist/photographer, was my great uncle. ;-)
I am very green! ;-)

Love your web site and attention to carbon footprint!
- Dawn, Armstong, BC
Hi, my daughter is a big fan of your site and has her eye on a new blue fiddle for her birthday coming up at the end of February. Your site is well done and she spends a lot of time on it reading and learning.
- James, Whitby, Ontario
I love your shop, and it was the first site that I found that had a good set of carbon fibre bows in stock.
I do love to help support smaller business people like yourself. [The website has] pictures of your products, good information about each product and clearly labeled prices.
- Alex, Pottstown, PA
"I am so impressed with your website and have referenced it to others in my fiddle chat groups."
- Melva, Anniston, Alabama
Your personality just jumps out your website and your emails. Stay passionate.
- Mike, Hamilton, ON
Great going on providing some good violin books --- this will be ideal for me to have the new books when I have plenty of time in the summer.
- Renate, BC
Thank-you Rhiannon. Good business move changing [many of] your prices to CAD! We're really looking forward to using this new violin from you, we really prefer to buy local, and from people we know. Thank-you again.
- Amelie and Missagh, Kamloops, BC
What a nice web site you have! I think I read that you had found that metric automotive [nuts] would work for the Bon Musica. I was wondering where one can buy metric [nuts]. I am thinking of trying a Bon Musica but would like to have replacement nuts ready since several people on their reviews have complained about the nuts that come with it getting loose.
- Kathy, Cairo Georgia
Your web site was very helpful to me in the fact that I had bought a violin and wasn't sure they had sent the correct size, by your charts they had. Thanks.

I [was] looking for an upgrade to my beginner violin and found your website. Your website is fabulous by the way.
I really enjoyed spending time with you and your family when I was trying out violins. I like your ideas for celebrating [my advancing to Suzuki Book 3]. I had a cookie after xc skiing but your idea of a cream puff sounds much better.
- Ardene, Vernon, BC
Thanks for the quick reply! The only local violin shop sells [a cheap brand of violas] and talks them up quite a bit. This is tempting but I wanted to shop around on the internet and get other options and opinions.
There's also string**.com and violin**.com which I am looking into but I actually liked your site the best because you play the viola and are not some impersonal paid high school flunky making minimum wage who doesn't understand the viola.
- Wesley, Utah
I really do appreciate the time and humor [you put into your site and emails]. Your website projects: the charm and integrity and its always so nice to see it backed up with real people!
- Mark, California
I was very happy to find your site today. Wasn't hard though. Number 2 on my google search. Thanks.
- Dan, Ontario
Thank you for all your help [setting up my order.] I will recommend [the Royal Sequence] CD to my students, and the other teachers at our school, and their students. I promise not to make dubs for students. I want them to buy their own recordings.
I like your website. We will link to yours.
- Julian Fisher, Toronto School for Strings
Hi! I love your site, will definitely stop in next time I'm up north of the border. I was looking for your hilarious "red violin" article to show my sister in law... I get a kick out of your archive!
- Tony, New York, New York
I love the halloween details you've got on there! Cheers,
- Kerry, Yellowknife, NT
I appreciate your support of organics and your eco-friendly operation.
- Mary, Laurel, MT
Hi Rhiannon! I like your site ,Well done. Thank you very much.
- Bill, Manitoba
Found your awesome website while looking for a used violin for my husband for Father's Day... Luckily I found your site as I was feeling overwhelmed....almost bit on the [other shop] gimmick ads until I read your info. Love whoever does your writing! Learned a lot . Thank you.
- Diane, From the Web
I have just spent about an hour on your website and I think I'm sold! [The Fiddlestix] looks like a great product and congratulations on your business. Looks like you have found a niche!
- Don, Fredericksburg Methodist Church, Texas
We're about to embark on our first violin purchase for our 3-turning-4 year old daughter. We're very excited to have found your site and its great enthusiasm and reputation/rapport. Thanks so much for your help!
- Christina, Niagara Falls, ON
Greetings. Nice site!
- Peter Flanagan, Ireland
Hello, I wanted to say thank you very much for the site you have put together, it was really helpful for me in finding a good "test" starter violin for my 4-year-old son. Merry Christmas!
- Todd, Sammamish, WA
I would love to consign with you. I do like the idea of the instrument remaining with me while it's on consignment too.
Theconsignment fee sounds fine as long as the violin is well marketed on your website, which is why I was interested in your selling it for me to begin with. It was your website where I first discovered Ivan Stankov's violins!
- Melinda, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
I just found your website and it is most helpful.
I found your site to have the most information I could find, and was impressed with what I learned on Fiddleheads.ca compared to some other sites I looked at. I was about to purchase someplace else when I began to read on your site.
- Keith, Loveland, CO
Sweet Jesus Rhiannon, I'm pretty darn excited I found your website. I Googled 'sizing a violin' and your site came up. It was one of the first I've visited after doing some superficial investigation into violins/fiddles...and turns out you're [nearby] and I'm living in Revelstoke. Wow.
I can't keep up with you[r emails]. You've exhausted me - delightfully so - from my computer chair.
[It's] nice not to be confronted with stuffy-ness. I was afraid I was going to have to go through Remenyi in Toronto who define stuffy...at least that was my impression going in there a few years ago.
- Denis, Revelstoke, BC
I found your website and I am in awe..it is great!!
- Shannon, Silver Spring, MD
Thanks for the guidance you've put on your website. It's been very helpful as I'm trying to get my 7 yr old started and don't have any knowledge on the subject.
- Venus, USA
Found your site while "researching" (if random Googling yet qualifies) violin sizes. Your sizing chart is immensely helpful. But best of all is your sense of humour. The 8-year-old is a leftie, as it happens, and your "We just pick our noses with a different finger" has certainly occurred to him ;-)
Thanks for your wonderful site! Cheers
Rhiannon - thank you so much for getting back to me. I am so excited about your website. I am a beginner, taking lessons from one of the coolest kids that I have ever met. I got sucked into fiddling when my little daughter started lessons from Tiffany [a Fiddleheads customer] and I decided that I wanted to play, as well. I would love a purple bow, it is just the snazziest.
- Heather, Twin Bridges, MT
It was very nice talking with you. Your website is so easy to use and very informative. I know Mehra's violin teacher was very happy to learn about it, so you may be getting more business from out here in Bowmanville!
- Andrea B, Bownmanville, ON
You have an outstanding web site. I was looking for information on violin sizing, particularly for wee folk and I found your site containing everything I wanted to know, and more. And so near to me...
- Rod, Enderby, BC
I came across your "Fiddleheads" website. Your photos are very stunning.
