Great Musicianship requires passion and commitment. A student with these qualities needs a violin that can keep up with them as their skills rapidly improve. The Maestro is up to the challenge, and is sure to make student, teacher and audience very happy!

The Maestro is a favorite among Suzuki teachers and private teachers with traditional studios. The reason is simple: The Maestro is a beautifully-performing and dependable violin that possesses the hallmarks of time-tested craftsmanship. When we set out to create this violin, our goal was to keep students motivated, teachers impressed and parents delighted. Once we succeeded, we knew we could never rest, so constant improvement was a must. Today’s Maestro is the best we’ve ever offered, with improvements made in tone, playability, hand-fell and consistency. With an unusually warm, round tone, yet outstanding projection, the Franz Hoffmann Maestro stands a head taller than other student violins at this price. Made to our exacting specifications in our Chinese partner workshop, each Maestro is carefully adjusted and test played in our Ann Arbor workshop, so that your Maestro is ready to play and sure to delight for years to come. Available in 4/4 – 1/4 sizes, with limited stock of 1/10 and 1/16 available.

    Wonderful Warm Sound

    My husband and I were hesitant to spend so much on a child's violin. However, after we received it and heard the beautiful warm tone quality, we were so pleased that we will only buy the Maestro n the future. We actually tried several other violins in the same price range, but they all sounded twangy (which is common with fractional violins). The most beautiful warm sound was created by the Hoffmann Maestro. Our teacher loves it, and for practice the warm tones are forgiving and easy on the ears. Besides the sound quality, the beautiful wood and varnish make our son look and feel like a professional. ... (See Full Review)
