Woodwind Repairs
New Premises!

In October 2018 I moved my workshop from my home into Presto Music in Leamington Spa. I still offer the same comprehensive woodwind repairs through the shop. You can now bring instruments for repair into the shop without contacting me in advance. If you wish to discuss a repair or book a time in advance please contact me directly by email or telephone the shop. See the Contact page for details.

I still offer private instrumental tuition from my home in Kenilworth. See Teaching page for details.


In January 2013 I moved from Coventry to the neighbouring town of Kenilworth.


I served on the committee of The Association for Musical Instrument Repairers (NAMIR Ltd) as the Website Co-ordinator for 4 years from 2008.
