In January 2016 I founded the boutique violin shop Bay Fine Strings partnered with Jou Music in San Jose and represent master workshop, antique, & contemporary violin family instruments & bows and their accessories. My mission is to provide personalized instrument acquisition empowering the music community with quality instruments to be inspired to play. Viewings are by appointment only, email firstname.lastname@example.org. I can ship select instruments on approval. You can visit www.bayfinestrings.com to see current inventory.
I trained classically growing up, finishing a BM and MM in violin performance at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, but my musical interests also include other genres. I perform with my wife, Jieun as the Yee Duo (violin and piano), Tango Del Cielo, and guitarist Jose Rodriguez as Duo Revirado. You can check out my e-concert clips at http://www.youtube.com/user/thomasyeeDOTnet and personal website www.thomasyee.net
I currently play a Guarneri inspired modern Frank Ravatin violin from 2014 and bows by Stephane Thomachot, Edwin Clement, Charles Espey, and Robert Morrow.
