Everywhere we go, there is music.

Every musician has a musical journey, and every instrument tells a story.  

At the beginning you will struggle through the challenges of learning technique and finger placement to make screeching strings turn into the simplest songs. Eventually you will look back and realize that your musical journey has weaved its way into all the moments of your life to become part of who you are.

Day Violins is a small family-owned business that has watched thousands of students, including our own children, discover music.  Will you allow us to be part of your story?  

Day Violins is honored to be part of your musical journey.

In 1994, two young fresh-faced kids fell in love, Jenna and Jason Day of Day Violins.  The next thirteen years brought college degrees, a variety of job experiences, moves and many changes including four little maestro’s of their very own.  And then one fateful day in June they decided to start Day Violins as a family-owned and operated premiere string shop in Northern Virginia.  

Who better to serve budding beginner or long-time accomplished musicians than a family that intimately knows that world?

MEET JASON DAY

There are three great passions in Jason’s life. His family, his violin, and football. Jason was born into a family of professional musicians who had a violin in his hands by age 4. A naturally talented musician he played all through his school years, participated in youth symphonic groups such as the American Youth Philharmonic while simultaneously proving himself on the football field with two state championships during high school.

Jason decided to make music his profession and headed off to college to earn his degree in Music Performance. After college, he decided to pursue his Suzuki Method training and turned to music education, teaching in the private sector and school systems for 25 years.

“Talent is universal, opportunity is not.” 

MEET JENNA DAY

Jenna also grew up in a musical family. Singing, playing instruments of all sorts, and dance parties were a regular part of her childhood. As an accomplished pianist, Jenna used her talents to accompany many students in recitals and performances, including her high school choir. Despite her love of the arts, Jenna’s educational path led her to social work and advocacy.

Jenna’s work with underprivileged populations has led Day Violins to work toward every child being able to afford the an opportunity to have music in their lives. She fulfills that with music advocacy and is a strong supporter of Instruments in the Attic which delivers refurbished instruments to children around the world. She serves on the Board of DC Strings Workshop, which provides music to neighborhoods in the Washington DC area that might not normally have access to concerts and lessons.
