All estimates are free! I can schedule work to be completed around your performance schedule and minimize downtime for your instrument.

Here are some specific services that I offer!


Schedule Appointment

Returning clients: due to a software update on November 5, 2018 you will need to create a new account with my booking system. Don’t worry, I remember seeing you previously!



I am located near Long Beach, California. If you would like to visit my shop the fastest way is to book an appointment here.

If you would like to ship your instrument to me so I can inspect it and give you an estimate, please send me an email so I can give you all of the information you need.



Angela does fantastic work keeping my bassoon in great shape! She works quickly and efficiently, at low cost. She’s really thoughtful and when I first came to her fixed a problem that had plagued my pancake key for years, and was dismissed by four other repairers. I’m so grateful for her!
