Head Technician

"Thank you so much for fixing my student's flute yesterday. I really didn't expect an on-the-spot repair, and apologize for even mentioning the possibility. As I stood there, it became clear it me that you had a very full plate of responsibility yesterday afternoon. Most people would not have been able to extend the time and attention you provided me with absolutely no notice. I just wanted to let you know that I deeply appreciate this."

-Richard Wyton, Band Director, Cider Mill School Wilton, CT

"I have found Bethel Music to be tops in repairs and service. I have worked with them for over 14 years. Great service and quality equipment."

-Tom Miner, Band Director

"I wanted to pass on a compliment -my VERY particular teacher was so pleased with the shape and fit of the new bridge on my cello! Believe me, anything that doesn't pass muster gets immediate disapproval. You have (yet another!) fan!"

-Kim, Customer
