  • How do I learn instrument repair
    Instrument repair is a complicated concept to describe in words. There are so many variables and solutions to each possible problem. It is for this reason it is one of the only trades still taught in the style of an apprenticeship. You need an experienced mentor to guide you through the problem solving phase so you can apply the best techniques to repair the instrument.
  • Is the Instrument Repair School an open enrollment school? Are there evening online courses available?
    Yes, Instrument Repair School is an open enrollment school that welcomes students from all backgrounds and experiences. We offer flexible online courses that can be taken in the evening to accommodate busy schedules. Contact us to find the next available session that meets your needs. Our team is dedicated to supporting you in achieving your goals, and we look forward to helping you succeed.
  • How does online instruction work?
    Our online courses are either private or group lessons. We meet over zoom so we can walk you through each step of the repair. You will need to have a project instrument and the required tools and supplies. You will be provided a list of each item needed and given enough time to buy or acquire before the course.
  • Do I need my own tools?
    Yes, you will need to own your own tools and supplies to be successful in the course. If you are taking the online courses you will need to purchase the required tools and supplies to complete the training. Once you are accepted into the program we will go over a tool list to determine which ones you will need. If you will be joining our in-person course, we will supply most of the expensive tooling while you are learning. You do not need to bring many tools for the course if you attend in person. You will have the option to purchase class packages for the instruments as you learn to work on them. Most of the tools for the class will be provided for in person sessions.
