I was your Luthier at the former Prussin Music for over 16 years and now I’ve opened my own shop.

Moar Music is dedicated to the support of musicians from students to professional players by providing and maintaining quality instruments through old world craftsmanship, modern innovation, and excellent service.

I strive to assist and educate my customers in making informed and appropriate decisions in their instrument purchases so they can buy with trust and confidence an instrument that best suits their budget and needs.

Ben's Testimonial:
Ian Moar has been my “go to” violin repair and modification expert for approximately 8 years.
I know him to be a highly skilled and inventive craftsman who works efficiently, with great precision, and is always willing to go “that extra mile” to make sure the job is done right.

Working within the demands studio recording and live performance, I often require difficult repairs and modifications for a number of my violins- both acoustic and electric. Ian has "saved the day" many times... always while maintaining a calm professional manner.

Additionally, the violins Ian has personally built have the qualities of much higher priced instruments. They are wonderfully balanced across all string ranges, and exceedingly responsive.
I look forward to playing his next personally crafted 5 string acoustic violin, and to our continued working association in the future.

I've known Eric for several years and worked on many of the instruments in his collection. Eric has referred many of his students to me over the years for both repairs or when they are looking to purchase a fine instrument.
