My Real World Violin Shop - H. Strobel
Henry Strobel has operated a commercial violin shop for over thirty years. Based on his experience, this book shows in detail how he does it. Repairs, guidelines, sources, sales, rental, instrument levels, business forms, customer relations, etc. It's not about getting rich selling old fiddles, but making a decent living providing genuine service to students, musicians, teachers, schools. Like all of Henry's books, it's downright readable too!
