Dennis has over 30 years experience and apprenticed many years ago under famed violin luthiers: Frank Busch (Portland, OR) and Verdi Walser (Salem, OR). Dennis is proficient in all levels of repair - from the simplest adjustment to a student's beginning instrument to completely rebuilding a professional's pride and joy. Dennis is also a very accomplished music educator as well as a professional violinist. He runs a very successful private teaching studio, specializing in violin and viola. Dennis plays professionally around Northern Nevada and has at one time or another performed with all of the area orchestras.
Absolute Music is proud to have Bob Stiehler on the team.
As a very highly regarded and respected guitar builder, Bob has been sought out by top musicians to work on their instruments. From simple adjustments to major repairs, Bob is Northern Nevada's only serious choice for fretted instrument repair. Whether it's your guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, or anything else, Bob's gotcha covered.
River Moore is from Washington State where, years ago, she graduated from Renton Technical College's aclaimed Band Instrument Repair Technology program.
Upon completion of her schooling, she worked as a band instrument repair technician for several respected music retail companies including Kennelly Keys, Yenney Music, and Music 6000. River is an accomplished flutist, which of course, helps her understand the needs and desires of the individual player, whether a young beginner or a seasoned professional. For fun, River participates in Rapier competitions (yes, sword fighting for us ignorant types) and she is the proud mom of one of the cutist kids you'll ever meet.
