“With short notice store was able to accomodate violin for my daughter. Thank you for the service and your patience.”
“I took violin lessons here for six years, as well as working as a receptionist my last year. Dani and Roumen, the owners of the store, are very friendly, warm, and caring people. They care about each and every person who walks into the store, and the lesson teachers are knowledgeable, skilled instructors. The store carries many products and accessories for string instruments, which was very convenient whenever I needed to purchase books or other music-related items. I have very many happy memories from learning and working there!”
“It is the best place where kids can start to learn new music instrument with very good teachers from USA and Europe,with a lot of years of experience in solo performing and orchestra playing. Mr.Roumen Raikovsky is one of the great violin,viola makers who make best instruments,so when you sign up for private lesons,they have a lot of instruments for you!”
"Great place for music education! The owners are kind and dedicated people and they work hard to make everybody feel welcome and get the best service possible. All the instructors are highly educated and experienced musicians and teachers. I taught piano lessons there for a few good years and I always felt right at home, encouraged to do my best, share my passion for music and help students strive!"
“I was a teacher at Solo Classic for 3 years. It is a great place for instrument rental and lessons. One stop shop for all a music student needs. The owners are always very accommodating if a student forgets to bring their instrument or book to their lessons, and they have great pricing and quality of their instruments. They also have excellent teachers. I highly recommend trying Solo Classic as your one stop shop for rentals, repairs, and lessons.”
“It's a wonderful place. Roumen Raykovski is one of the best violin-makers I have ever seen. He knows violins like no one else and he feels the instrument. I would recommend this place it to everyone.”
"We were looking for musicians to play live at our wedding and Solo Classic were able to help us. They offer professional and friendly service that is second to none. Even with our odd request, they asked some of their instructors and we were able to follow up and this is how Solo Classic played a special role on our special day! Thank you!"
We chose Solo Classic because we were looking for someone to fix up our cello and lessons for my son. We are thrilled with the service. Roumen completely took apart the cello and brought up the value of the instrument--it looks better than it ever has. Dani was also very kind and made sure that we were satisfied with everything, every step of the way. Great instructors as well! Our son recently began lessons and already has developed much more of a passion for music. Highly recommend.
We recently purchased one of Roumen's handmade violins for our son. We couldn't be more pleased, especially after one of our friends from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra gave us his approval. Dani was so kind and supportive during the buying process...she recommended some other shops so that we could find the right instrument for our son and she even let us borrow the instrument so that my son could see how it played. After comparing and asking our friend's opinion, Roumen's violin was the obvious choice. The sound is brilliant and resonates like it's a 100 year old violin. Thank you Dani and Roumen!
