About Us


Strings is the magazine for players of violin, viola, cello, bass, and fiddle. Strings readers make music, and they make music an integral part of their daily lives. Strings helps them do both, by covering the personalities, music, news, events, instruments, and gear that matter. Strings provides global coverage of the classical and new music played by many of its readers while exploring all musical genres where string players are active. For teachers and students, amateurs and professionals, Strings is the authority.


The Strings store is your one-stop-shop for everything you need to help you become a better string instrument player and owner, as well as a more educated buyer of instruments and instrument-related goods. Here you will find an extensive selection of instructional guides (many of which come with step-by-step video), books that provide reference, how-to, and advice for enthusiasts, students, and performers on bowed stringed instruments, and an array of sheet music in our Strings Charts line. These elegantly engraved editions, accompanied by helpful instruction and performance notes, offer artfully arranged interpretations of popular rock, jazz, and roots music, along with fresh new alternative-styles original compositions. And if you teach, you'll also discover wonderful material for beginning and intermediate student ensembles.
