Band Instrument Repair Program - Overview

By earning a diploma from the Band Instrument Repair program, you will gain the entry-level skills necessary for employment and advancement in this rewarding, viable career option within the music field.

A comprehensive, nine-month study of the repair of woodwind and brasswind instruments (with some percussion), the program includes three instructors in two fully-equipped, recently remodeled repair shops, with a third shop devoted to machine tool operation such as lathes and drill presses.  You can be assured of an up-to-date environment that is conducive to learning.

Up to 40 students enroll yearly in Band Instrument Repair, many coming from either performance or music education backgrounds — men and women looking for a new vehicle to channel their musical interests and talents in a challenging educational setting where hands-on practice is central to success.

The majority of our graduates will gain employment in music stores with in-house repair facilities or in independent repair shops. The outlook for employment in this field is quite good as demand for qualified graduates has remained constant since the program’s founding in 1976.
