I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!

My son has been taking music lessons from Ms. Plasencia for 3 years now. He is learning to play the piano and violin. We rent a violin from Ms. Plasencia which makes things very convenient. Jonah has always loved music and he enjoys learning to play new songs. Ms. Plasencia has a wonderful way of working with kids. She is very patient and knows just how far she can push my son but still keep his love of music alive and well! I am so glad we found Ms. Plasencia!


Our violin and piano program for children is taught by using a group Suzuki Method, which has been very successful. Let them learn how to play, as well as give them the opportunity to teach their peers to reinforce their learning.


We are skilled in performing professional repairs on stringed instruments and bows. We take great pride in our ability to provide fine quality of repairs at reasonable cost to our customers. Our restoration process ensures that the instrument will retain its highest value and integrity, as well as restore its original tonal character. We offer bow rehairing services. We use high-quality bow hair to rehair your bow. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. We provide free estimates. We also provide rental violins, violas, and cellos. Our stringed instrument rental includes free tuning, cleaning and resetting of the instrument upon every three months of rental. Please contact us for details and rates on rental. We also offer affordable lessons for all ages.


I teach all levels and all ages. I focus on the fundamentals of your instrument, music theory such as scales, chords, rhythm, and reading music. I guide students to be creative and have fun while learning the theory behind the notes. I teach rock, jazz, classical, and just about any style!


I can also teach up to intermediate levels for violin (violin is my strongest suit). I have played the violin since I was in third grade (I am a freshman in college). I have missed a couple years in between, but I am currently anticipating to join the orchestra at my university.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
