Paul is thorough in all the work he undertakes.
Paul Parsons, in my opinion, is an expert in his field. My first experience of his work was when I was feeling extremely frustrated with the violin I was playing on but not in a position to purchase a new instrument. He took this violin, which was sounding small, closed and dull and transformed the sound with the work he did.
A couple of years later, when I was in a position to look for a new violin, he found a violin for me that could not have been a more perfect fit. It was within the budget we had discussed, but for me, more importantly, it matched my personality as a player. He knew my playing, and looked for a violin that would match my style of playing.
Paul listens to his client to find out what they are looking for and applies his skills in working towards the solution for them, whether that be work on their existing instrument or searching for a new instrument for them. Not only is he personable, but he is thorough in all the work he undertakes.
I send all my pupils to him when issues arise with their instruments and also when they are looking for their next stage of instrument. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul Parsons to any violinist at any stage in their career; he is the best at what he does.
