I am a professional violinist/violist. I have taught privately on Long Island for the past 20 years. In 2000 I opened Strictly Strings Smithtown Pines Violin Shop. We own over 500 violins, violas and cellos and operate an extensive rental program for the surrounding schools. We stock all levels of violins, violas and cellos for purchase as well. We also carry a full line of method books, solo pieces, and accessories. Our hours for business are by appointment seven days a week. Just call 631 864 6512 and ask for Debi Maier.

Our Rental Program
The best student instruments…and the best service!
At Strictly Strings we have an extensive rental program for violins, violas and cellos. All sizes are in stock and each instrument has been professionally set up with new strings, a properly fitted bridge, a bow, rosin, and a lightweight backpack case.
A young string student needs three things to get the right start and maintain the love of music: a good teacher, ample encouragement, and a quality instrument, properly set up. At Strictly Strings, we understand the importance of making the most of you child’s first steps in his or her musical life, whether developing the foundations of a musical career or simply embarking on a lifelong love of music.
Our mission is to help the young musician choose an instrument of quality in a relaxed, caring and knowledgeable environment. We believe the relationship between the student and his or her instrument is of paramount importance to the success and momentum of a young musician.

One Stop Shopping
We stock everything you need, from violin, viola and cello outfits to bows, cases, and rosin. We as well stock all method books and accessories used by our local schools.
Summers are Free!
We believe in encouraging young musicians to keep playing and practicing all year round, to keep their skills sharp and to continue having fun with music. If you chose to renew your rental contract by June 30th, the summer months are on us!

To measure what size violin best suits you, you need to know the length between your neck and the middle of your left-hand palm (when your hand is fully extended and raised perpendicular to your body, palm facing upward). The violin size determined by the neck/mid-palm approach would be the biggest size students should use.
