Thank you to's January advertisers

January 12, 2010 at 6:55 PM

I'd like to thank violin shops, retailers, music schools and teachers who have helped bring you this month.

None of the wonderful information that you can find on would be here if we didn't have advertiser support for our community. So thank you to our returning advertisers for their financial support:

We'd also like to welcome three new advertisers this month:

Laurie also will be posting this week an interview with Hilary about her new album. And look for Hilary on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien on Thursday.

Students and young professionals, please give strong consideration to the Oistrakh and Indy competitions. Both are advertising their application deadlines now, and are looking for the next Augustin Hadelich (the 2006 Indy winner), a young professional ready to take the next step to international acclaim. Could that be you?

We hope that you will consider these advertisers first when you are making a decision about violin and music-related purchases, as well as your violin career - as a way of showing your appreciation for their support of If you run a music-related business, or are an administrator at a music school, competition or camp, we invite you to consider supporting this lively community by becoming an advertiser on

Thank you, again, to everyone who has helped make such a fun and informative community!
