Schmitt Music has a renewed commitment to the business of orchestral strings and service! Meet the staff of The String Shop:

Peter Schmitt is joining his family business as Manager of The String Shop, located at Schmitt Music in Brooklyn Center, MN. Peter joined the company in May after completing the violin repair program at Southeast Technical College in Red Wing, Minnesota. Prior to joining Schmitt Music, he attended the Thomas Chippendale International School of Furniture Design and Construction in Gifford, Scotland, and after returning from the UK, operated a custom furniture and cabinetry business in Northeast Minneapolis for over 10 years.

Peter is excited that his passion for woodworking will now find expression in the construction and repair of string instruments within his family business. Peter, his wife Margit, and their two sons Paul and Timothy live in South Washington county. Please contact Peter at peter.schmitt@schmittmusic.com.
