 Repair Internship

I find repairing clarinets very fascinating and I started repairing clarinets on my own time. I got a hold of some materials and started repair tenon corks, pads, and key corks and I would like to take it to the next level. To anyone in the repair business, I was wondering if it was common to have an internship with a repair person at a local music store (as a high schooler). If so, I was wondering what they could do there.

I would look at NAPBIRT, National Association of Band Instrument Repair Technicians, web page to find if there are any techs in your area.
you could also email them and ask for advice
Good Luck

A lot of gifted musicians find their ways to repair schools. Lets face it, some musicians don't want to teach middle school kids for the rest of their lives or play in the military bands. But they have a gift to repair and make things right. But chances of nailing that job with the Chicago Sym may not happen. So repair is a great way to make $100 per hour of more. Often more than what symphony players make. Schools can last for a few years if you want to repair instruments from tubas to clarinets to drums. Or just maybe 6 months for just the clarinet.
