EVEN THE BEST MAINTAINED AND MOST WELL CARED FOR INSTRUMENTS WILL NEED THE ATTENTION OF A QUALIFIED INSTRUMENT REPAIR TECHNICIAN FROM TIME TO TIME. WHEN YOUR CHILD'S INSTRUMENT IS IN NEED OF REPAIR, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU ACT QUICKLY. EVERY DAY THAT A STUDENT IS WITHOUT A WORKING INSTRUMENT IS A DAY THAT HE OR SHE WILL FALL BEHIND IN THEIR MUSICAL DEVELOPMENT.
When you take an instrument to the repair shop, you can expect the repair to take 7-10 business days. Instrument repair technicians offer free estimates before they actually repair the instrument, much like an auto mechanic would. Some repair technicians are able to provide your child with a "loaner" instrument while your instrument is being repaired. If a "loaner" is not available, you may consider renting a replacement instrument to use while yours is being repaired. When you take an instrument in for repair ALWAYS KEEP YOUR MOUTHPIECE.
Families who currently rent an instrument from Music & Arts may have a maintenance plan as part of your rental contract. If this is the case, repairs and routine maintenance on your child's instrument are performed FREE of charge.
