MMED 611 Band Instrument Repair LEVEL 1

3 credits 45.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Knowledge of instrument repair can stretch your budget dollars. Learn how to fix those little problems yourself. Replace springs, loosen stuck slides and even do some dent work. Preventive maintenance and emergency repairs can save time and money. What to bring: Bring a variety of school instruments for repair or use the instruments supplied. Upon successful registration for the course, each participant will receive an email containing detailed information on what instruments, tooling, and project materials are needed for the class. All tooling, parts, supplies and ‘older instruments’ (for practice repairs) are provided. The course is structured so each participant has time to learn and practice the repair procedures and then they may perform the detailed repairs and maintenance procedures to their own and/or school owned instruments, while under the supervision of the instructor.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
