From Our Website

Learning violin or any stringed instrument can be difficult and takes practice to master. When your instrument's sound quality is amazing, you'll practice more, and the more you play, the better you'll get. Antonio Strad has been trusted by musicians for more than 24 years. With our guidance, you can find the size, style and level to fit your musical ability. Before you hit your first note, you'll be well on your way to reaching your potential as a musician.


Founded over two decades ago by violinist and luthier Guolian Zhou and music professor Mary Zhang, Antonio Strad quickly grew to become one of the largest string instrument shops in Texas. Their love of fine stringed instruments and their knowledge of quality has created a selection dubbed a "Texas Treasure" in the state. The staff at Antonio Strad is highly educated and knowledgeable in all aspects of string instruments from classically trained luthiers, professional instructors, an experienced appraiser and buyer who travels the world studying and finding fine instruments, a professional performer in the symphony working right in our workshop, and a violin maker and restorer trained at the Violin Making School of the Shanghai Conservatory of Music who has been sought after for his expert repairs and restorations for over two decades.


After receiving the violin that your shop fixed for me, I was very happy to see the broad change, both in tone and in terms of playing it. It is now a lot easier to play and the tone now has a clean precision to it. Thank you so much! Our repair and restoration services have been called "a hidden treasure of Texas" by professional symphony musicians. Customers are amazed at the quality of our work, the improvement in their instrument's tone quality and the way cracks and chips seem to disappear.
