Professional Websites

March 23, 2013 at 2:35 AM

I do not have a recording label or professional management, but I would like to have my own website to increase awareness of my existence and give myself a more professional image. Does anybody have suggestions as to people that could manage a website for a professional violinist and teacher for fairly cheap? I appreciate any and all positive feedback. Thanks!

Hi Ned,

I hope that you find what you need for a professional website, but I wanted to let you know that you are also welcome to use your profile page on (in your case, that's as a website for yourself. The very first aim that I had, when founding, was to provide a place where people could put their resumes online. If you go to "My Profile," then [Edit Your Personal Profile/Account Information], you can post quite a lot on that page, in terms of a bio. (Picture, contact info, embed Youtube into your bio, etc.) You can also change the information whenever you'd like. So that's one very cheap way of having a website, that's neither a FB or MySpace page. :)

Hi There! I am a musician who learned to do websites. I currently do them for many small businesses, including a couple of violin shops, a bow maker, a violin maker, and many others. I'd be happy to talk to you about doing a site for you. You can contact me at if you would like more info. I can send you some links to my work and get you some references if you wish.
