Beginning & Growing String Programs Australia-Wide
We are dedicated to developing the next generation of string players - hand-in-hand with the country’s most amazing teachers. Our joy is in making lives easier - whether it is assisting with presenting your career-making proposal to your leadership team, helping with instrument repairs, or guiding you towards the best tutor book for your school, we look forward to helping you be the best teacher you can be.
Supporting educators is what we do. From the inception of the business in 2005, founders Anna and Toby would drive from town to town across Queensland to sell products and help educate students, parents and teachers, in their homes and schools. The service provided during these visits set the foundation of the Simply for Strings customer service philosophy - education and support - to which we still pride ourselves on to this day. Now for over 15 years, teachers, schools, universities and conservatoria from across Australia have trusted Simply for Strings to supply the highest quality instruments, accessories, repairs and servicing for their string programs.
The Education team within Simply for Strings provides a specialised service that caters for schools, universities and conservatoria. The Education team is a small and dynamic team with a wealth of knowledge and resources to support all levels of string programmes Australia-wide. We pride ourselves on developing long-term, trusting relationships with bespoke and specialised guidance, so you know exactly who to turn to throughout your teaching journey.
