The shop was founded by two string teachers who realized their students had no local source for high quality, affordable student instruments; from the beginning, the shop has aspired to provide everything a string player might need under one roof, from instruments and bows to sheet music and the full range of accessories. Now owned and operated by Rachel and Dianne Goggan, Blackerby Violin Shop has expanded their offerings to include a selection of classical guitars and accessories, as well as bowed string instruments suitable for professional string players.
