Nate Banzhof, store owner and instrument repair technician
I have been the assistant band director at Norwood high school for the last four years. I’ve been teaching in one form or another (classroom, private lessons, group lessons, etc.) and playing music professionally for over twenty years. I also served as the senior science educator at the Drake Planetarium for 8 years.
Working as a band director, I saw a need for high quality, affordable instrument repair done on a reasonable schedule.
Because I’m not a chain or big store, I have way less overhead and can afford to charge less than the big guys. It also means that I can focus more on the quality of work being produced.
It is a new company, but I have been repairing instruments for over twenty years. In preparation to start this new company I also went back to school to the Colorado Institute of Musical Instrument Technology to refresh my repair skills.
