instrument repair
Instrument Repair
  • If your student’s instrument is in disrepair, please DO NOT attempt to fix it yourself. Unless you are a trained luthier. 
  • If it is a rental instrument, please take it to the store where you are renting it from and they should repair it-if you have paid for the insurance, etc.
  • If it is an NISD instrument, bring it to school and I will have it repaired.
  • If it is your own instrument, bring it to school and I will assess the damage and let you know where and how to fix it. 
