My employment has always involved working with my hands, and problem solving. Over the years, I've done repair and restoration work in violin shops, guitar shops, and accordion shops. The problem solving aspect is my favorite part of what I do.
Part of that is determining and working within the limitations of a budget.
We’ll sit down and assess your instrument together. We’ll talk about its playability as well as stability, and its sound. Then we’ll establish a budget of time and materials, and only once that’s done and agreed upon, proceed.
While It would be nice to be able to say that price is no object, in my experience, that’s rarely the case. I’m used to prioritizing work so that the necessary gets done, and details that can wait until next time do so, if required.
