Musical Instrument Making and Repair

If you want to know how to make a musical instrument, our specialist workshops are a great place to learn. We’re stocked with specialist tools as well as a large stock of woodworking tools and equipment. We also help you choose which tools you might want to buy for yourself and how to select and source materials and accessories.

You’ll learn at workbenches providing you with continual hands-on experience. Our purpose-built workshops benefit from natural light and additional task lighting to help you develop precision and attention to detail.

Our experienced tutors can teach you how to make musical instruments including violins, guitars as well as repairing these instruments.
