Repairs Price List 2020

With over 13 years of instrument repairing experience, and a great love for all things music related, I have the ability to fix almost any instrument, after all music runs in my family!

My father has been repairing instruments in Brisbane for over 30 years, fortunately passing a lot of that knowledge over to me. And his father/my grandfather was responsible for opening the well known Australian Academy of Music in Spring Hill back in the 70s.

 

I have travelled the world learning to repair instruments of all kinds, and I also offer my repair services at the local annual Woodford Folk Festival, repairing for local and international music acts.

 

With this kind of outstanding track record you can be sure that your instruments are in good hands!
