      Get to know Terry McShane

      From the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix and an apprenticeship with a violin builder in Boulder, CO to owning the String Shop of Arizona in Tempe for 20 years, Terry has been repairing string orchestra instruments for over 40 years. He has collaborated with several distinguished luthiers in that time. Most recently, he began working at Arizona Fine Violins in 2013 before becoming Music & Arts's luthier at their first-ever string specialty shop in 2022. While he claims to enjoy working alongside other technicians, he can often be found sitting alone at his bench talking to himself.
