Total Music in Glenview has it all: sheet music, lessons, instrument rental and sales. And when an instrument needs to be fixed before a big concert, they turn to skilled repairmen to get the job done.
Total Music owner Gary Karner handles woodwind repair. However, if a bass breaks down, a cello crashes, or a violin gets run over by a car, he turns to William Hoffman.
A Glenview Native, Hoffman has dedicated his life to repairing all shapes and sizes of string instruments. He's even built a few himself.
