About me

Geoff Young - Shropshire Woodwind Instrument Repairs woodrepairs@hotmail.co.uk | 07903 734659

The first 4 years of repairing and servicing instruments was as an apprentice for ArtisanTechnic.com - Shropshire's Musical Instrument Repairers, for my brother.

To finalise my training in 2009 I attended a one week residential Woodwind Repair course to accredit me as a Professional Member of NAMIR (the National Association of Musical Instrument Repairers) and as a professionally qualified woodwind instrument repairer. NAMIR requires that any member achieves exceptionally high standards in instrument repair and customer service.
