A life-long band student, I have a Bachelor’s degree in saxophone performance from the University of the Witwatersrand located in beautiful Johannesburg, South Africa. I am grateful to play in the Treasure Valley Concert Band.

We serve all levels and needs for band instruments, from minor repairs all the way to Straubinger-certified pad replacements and upgrades.
