High Strung Faced High Stakes to Deliver Music Lessons Online

A chief fixture to the Triangle's classical and folk music community, High Strung Violins & Guitars faced high stakes under pandemic restrictions. Net Friends resolved to help this local shop withstand turbulent times and maintain their awards for "Best Music Lessons in the Triangle" by modernizing High Strung's Wi-Fi and video conferencing capabilities.

High Strung's Challenge

Due to pandemic restrictions, High Strung music students were prevented from coming into the store for classes and private lessons. This was a substantial revenue source for the local music shop and High Strung did not have reliable technology in place to offer music instruction over the internet.

High Strung's Music Plays On

"One of our buildings is 100 years old, so we struggled with phone reception across the two structures. With the new internet system, our phones work seamlessly and video conferencing has completely improved our business model. We couldn’t be more pleased.”

— Will Postlethwait, High Strung Violins & Guitars

Before NetCore

High Strung needed modern wi-fi, reliable networking equipment, and an internet-based phone system to help them deliver better services to clients during the pandemic. However, budget constraints are a common roadblock for small businesses in need of technology upgrades.

After NetCore

With NetCore Elements, High Strung now enjoys affordable, best-in-class IT equipment and managed infrastructure services. Their music students can easily access lessons online to continue their studies without technology barriers. In 2022, High Strung secured another well-deserved "Best of the Triangle" award with the Independent Weekly (also a Net Friends' customer)!
