Dear Violinist.com friends and colleagues,
I wanted to tell you about a few new developments here at Violinist.com. First, I'd like to let you know that Robert Niles, my husband and the technical wizard who custom-wrote much of the software for Violinist.com, is officially taking over the duties as Violinist.com's Advertising Director so that I can concentrate all my efforts on the editorial content of Violinist.com.
If you are interested in having a big, colorful ad that lots of violinists look at every day, please contact Robert! (And if you want to read about what we offer, here are our advertising packages and here are our reader demographics.)
Our first priority at Violinist.com has always been to help people fan their passion for the violin: providing a place for people to exchange information, share their thoughts, and grow in their musical journeys. When you help another member by participating in a discussion, writing a blog or asking a good question, you support this goal.
But we also need financial support, and this is where our advertisers come in: they make it possible for us to do some of our more ambitious reporting such as our interviews and covering events like the Starling-DeLay Symposium at Juilliard as well as to pay the bills that keep the site online. We thank our current advertisers: GoStrings.com, The Juilliard School, Marquis Violins, Metzler Violin Shop, Shar, Snow Violin, Tonareli Music Supply, Clayton Haslop's Violin Mastery and Baerenreiter, for supporting us in this way. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the site, please e-mail or call Robert.
Also, I wanted to announce our new free classified ad section, and here's more about that from Robert. Many, many people have asked for this over the years, and now we are giving it to you!
Thanks to all of you for supporting Violinist.com in the many ways that you do!
Jeez Laurie, isn't that nepotism?
I know, he hired me as editor a long time ago; the price was right!...;)
