Our craft. How do we learn?
Around this time every year there is an international convention of repair Technicians that gathers together to discuss instrument repair. There are usually over 200 technicians in attendance from all over the world. This year we will be sending three of our own technicians.
It is called the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Technicians or NAPBIRT.
Instrument manufacturers will be there showing off their new designs. Tool manufactures and suppliers will be there showing their latest and greatest wares. There will be about 20 different training sessions on various repair techniques. All being taught by fellow repair technicians.
In addition to this convention there are several mini-sessions throughout the year for specialized training that we also sometimes attend.
We regularly send our Technicians to these events in order to keep them at the top of our craft so that we can better serve you, the customer.
