I felt like a lone wonderer in my quest for music, until I found this beautiful place. Every time I go there, I get boost in my understanding of an instrument and ability to play... I know, sounds magic :-)....

We have been customers of Mr. Rufino for a few years. We find he has a wide selection of instruments available for any price range. We have both purchased a viola for our daughter and also rent one for her to keep in school. Pleasant, knowledgeable and honest.

The Long Island Violin Shop is certainly an oasis of culture within Huntington. As a shop, it's violins are world class. The shop covers the needs of - and for - every age group and level of experience. Highly recommended, not only for the specialty of their product, but for its atmosphere.

We recently looked for a violin for our five-year old. We wanted something that actually sounded good if you played it right. We didn't mind spending a little more, but wanted a decent value for what we received. After trying five violins from prominent shops (all shipped to us). We agreed with our daughter's teacher that the doestch from Long Island Violin shop had the best sound. We tried two other doestch's and two European models as well. None of them sounded this good, and they were all more expensive. From our experience with Long Island Violin Shop, I think they do a good set up, listen well, and give a reasonable value.

The day I walked onto Elm Street and beheld the Long Island Violin Shop, with the colorful cello cases in the window, I was heartened that classical music was given a big boost in Huntington. Not only handy for string players to have an expert in town, but they have delightful programs with fine musicians, salon-style, another lovely addition to our town.

I have known Charles for the last 25 yrs. I had numerous contacts with him over those years in many ways. He has done repair work on my cello and bow. I have had private students rent from him and purchase their instruments from him. He has always been the consummate professional and he clearly loves his work. He is equally good with children and adults. It's best to make an apt before you go so that Charles can focus on you and whatever your needs are.

Conveniently located in the heart of the village. The store has a broad range of quality instruments and accessories at reasonable prices. If the store doesn't stock it, it's ordered promptly. The owner is very knowledgeable and offers top-notch service and honest appraisals.

A wonderful, magical jewel...right here in my own back yard! An incredibly professional & helpful staff. We have been getting our daughter's violins from the Long Island Violin Shop since she began lessons 8 years ago, & we couldn't be more pleased with the service. As a violinist myself, I highly recommend this special place for all of your string-instrument needs. Truly a gem!

This was a great violin shop when it was is Dix Hills and is even better now that it's in Huntington Village. Charles Rufino is highly skilled and a really good person with whom to do business. You'll not find a finer place to bring your stringed instruments.

I love this place, it is a treasure,

This is a shop with excellent service and knowledgeable staff and skilled craftsmen. They actually make new instruments and can solve any problem you need fixed.
You would have to go to Manhattan to find comparable service. And it is a great place to visit- a beautiful vibe and decorated to delight you. Every time I go there I feel uplifted.
