Director, Sam Matthews

Sam's Strings Violin Shop + Paganini School of Music

I began violin when I was 4 as a Suzuki student, later switching to cello, and eventually pursuing a Bachelors and Masters in Cello Performance at the Peabody Conservatory. I taught cello and orchestra for many years, but growing the business and raising a young family made it challenging to do both. Now, I am absolutely thrilled to be adding a music education component to Sam's Strings Violin Shop via the Paganini School of Music

Our Vision

To provide young musicians the opportunity to reach their goals and potential through access to experienced and dedicated teachers; group classes that expand their repertoire and instill confidence; masterclasses with regionally and nationally known artists to provide prospective on a grander scale. In addition, we hope that our classes will reinforce and further strengthen the excellent public school programs in our area. 

Opening in July of 2019

Our brand new, purpose-built is in the final stages of completion, and will be open around July 1st, 2019!
