In 2015, each month we will feature a different segment of our industry represented in the Oral History Program. Band instrument repair technicians are the featured segment for January! Relying on our strong connection with NAPBIRT (National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians), we have been working to capture the pioneers, mentors or innovators within this important element of our industry. As a result, we have collected several dozen interviews with repair techs over the years, including Chuck Kessler (pictured) of Kessler & Sons Music in Las Vegas, who was interviewed last week. Thanks to the many NAPBIRT friends who have helped us grow this area within our Oral History Collection!
For the first interview in this series with Chuck Kessler, founder of Kessler & Sons Music, go here: https://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/chuck-kessler
