  • What is the world's longest viola joke? Harold in Italy.
  • Victor Borge: Why do people take an instant dislike to the viola? It saves time.

    (The viola jokes are included for entertainment only. They definitely do not reflect the opinion of VIOLA or its staff. The American Viola Society at last count had collected over 5,000 viola jokes worldwide. VIOLA thinks other instruments are just jealous of the viola and its superb players.)

    Remember, all viola jokes can be taken up a fifth or down an octave!

  • What is a minor second? Two violists playing in unison.
  • What is a cluster chord? A viola section playing on the C string.

    Our Repair Shop is staffed with only the best technicians. We require all of our staff to be certified and to take a minimum of two classes per year. The head of our shop is also an instrument maker. Consequently, they can give your instrument the proper care it (and you) deserve. No repairs are too big or too small for our staff.

    They can also do instrument appraisals. If you need your instrument valued for insurance purposes, they can do it. They will also be glad to evaluate any instrument you are interested in purchasing. This will give you the peace of mind to know the value and condition of the instrument before you spend your hard-earned money to buy it.
