In this short course, you will learn how to assemble and disassemble your clarinet, replace a bumper, key, or tenon cork, and discover how much you like doing repair.

Based on four years on Zoom classroom teaching, feedback and surveys, we have refined our approach to learning instrument repair – We now utilise a work and your own pace style of learning. Leveraging the power of Canvas LMS to provide learning at a pace everyone can achieve, allowing our students to watch the video and written content and attend Live Classes and Work-alongs as scheduled on the Canvas calendar throughout the course intake.

Basics class includes: 1 Live Class, 1 Work-Along.

Live Classes are held on Zoom, where each session will be recorded – These are typically held on the third week of each month. These are a masterclass style class to supplement your learning from watching the videos in the modules section

Work-Along time – Allows you to drop in and work at the same time as our master technicians and chat
