The Clarinet & Saxophone Society, in association with the Cambridge Woodwind Makers, have organised two one-day courses on Instrument Repair. You will have the opportunity to learn how your instrument works and how to clean, care and fix problems. With expert guidance you will observe and practice repair skills and learn how to check if your instrument is performing at its best.
Using the dedicated teaching workshop at Bury Farm in Stapleford near Cambridge, you will have access to the guidance, tools and materials you might require. A range of instruments for you to practice on will be available and you are also invited to bring your own, a student’s or an instrument from school to work on.
These courses are aimed at professional players, music teachers, college students as well interested players and craftspeople. As a player, knowing that your instrument is functioning at its best will give you greater confidence and improve your playing experience.
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.
