OWNER: Andrzej Derkacz - head restorer

Andrzej began his instrument restoration journey in 1995 at Kolstein NY, known for their high quality workmanship and integrity. He spent time working and learning techniques of restoration and varnishing of string instruments under the supervision of Barrie Kolstein and Jacob Cralidis. His passion for restoration excelled while working at the String Shop of Arizona with Terrance McShaine. Andrzej saw the need for the new violin shop in the Phoenix metro area and in 2009 he and his father in-law Stanislaw Cebulski decided to open Andrew's Fine Violins.


Born in Hong Kong, the Chinese-Canadian composer Charles Liu immigrated to Canada as a child with his family in 1988. He had begun taking violin lessons with Alec Hou at age 12. Charles was accepted to the Bachelor of Music program at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada graduated as a theory and composition specialist.

As a composer, Liu’s works have been performed in Canada and the US. He has lived in Arizona since 2010 and has regularly performed as a section violinist with the Chandler Symphony Orchestra since 2015. Recently, his works have been performed by the Metropolitan Youth Symphony (Mesa, AZ) and Burn City String Quartet (Phoenix, AZ).

Liu is currently employed as the office manager at Andrew’s Fine Violins and resides with his daughter in Chandler, Arizona.

Stanislaw Cebulski - restorer

Stanislaw worked with Andrzej Derkacz at

Kolstein and the String Shop of Arizona.

He greatly influenced the idea of opening our own

shop and actually made it all happen. With his high

working ethic, integrity and superior workmanship,

Stanislaw was giving all of us a great example to follow.

In 2017 he went on well deserved retirement and moved back to Poland where he enjoys pursuing his hobbies.
