If you want to pursue a career in musical instrument craft then this is an excellent place to start. This course will provide you with the underpinning skills and knowledge to progress through the levels of musical instrument craft. This course includes the making of a complete Clarinet from raw materials. You may also have the opportunity to experiment with techniques used in Flute making and may opt to study metal bodied instrument making instead of repair. The range of instruments for repair includes the Bassoon, Piccolo, Bass Clarinet and Cor Anglais.
Upon successful completion you will be able to progress into employment or become a self-employed maker or repairer.
During this course you will study, both theoretically and practically: fault-finding and repair techniques; an introduction to the replacements on tenons; tone holes and the repair of dents in metal bodied instruments; the repair of cracks in wooden bodied instruments; an introduction to advanced and speed repair techniques.
