The aim is to equip you with the skills needed to identify problems, undertake successful emergency repairs and maintain your woodwind instrument in good playing condition.

If you are a music teacher or orchestral player, you might know a number of people who would be interested in one of our Repair & Care Courses. If you have a group of six or more people we can arrange discounted rates using your dates preferences.
