Having apprenticed for 7 years at The Woodwind Workshop in Manchester, I now work independently as a woodwind repairer while maintaining a strong relationship with mentor and master repairer, John Clark. My students find my skills in this area particularly useful as I always carry some basic tools with me, fixing minor problems in lessons. I believe it is valuable to teach students about their instruments, to gain an understanding of the physics of sound and an appreciation of the mechanics of the key-work.
