Teacher Gift Program:

At Sullivan Violins, we recognize that many teachers provide high levels of assistance in helping their students find an appropriate instrument or bow. Their often unpaid services, such as helping students by coming to the shop to try our inventory, or giving unpaid lesson time to consider choices, may be a considerable commitment for them. Because of these reasons, we try to give our best service to teachers and their students. If a teacher has gone out of his or her way for their student to assist in the selecting an instrument, we often send the teacher a gift card for goods or services at Sullivan Violins as thank you. These gift cards range from a minimum of $25 to a maximum of $250, and are transferable. We also offer a 10% teacher discount on almost all strings, cases and accessories. Contact us for details!

Sullivan Violins does not offer undisclosed commissions. Historically many dealers perceived commissions to teachers as a necessary part of doing business. We are grateful for the support of teachers, but feel that undisclosed commissions can be against the best interest of the purchaser.
