Saxophone Repair Course Level 2



Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Level 1

Our Level 2 Saxophone Repair course is designed for those who seek to refine their skills from Level 1 to build speed and earn income from repair.

Designed for private lesson teachers, musicians who want to learn more about the care and maintenance of their instruments, and for those exploring if becoming a master repair technician is a career option.

Level 2 Saxophone Class is held on Saturdays for 90 minutes from 9:00am-10:30am MT.  Level 2 is a 6 month course.


All classes will be recorded and be made available to you. Following the purchase of the course, we will send you details to register on Zoom for it. Enrollment is limited and when we run out of Level 1 kits this course will be closed for registration.
