Last week we went over the procedures for turning your instrument if you or your student is no longer going to be playing. This week, let’s chat about what to do with your instrument if you are going to continue playing! Of course, we hope your summer plans leave you lots of time for practice, but it’s also a great time to catch up on maintenance for your flute. If summer is a down time for you and your playing time, then you should send your instrument in for a check-up. We recommend two visits each year to help keep your instrument in proper playing condition and the summer is the perfect time.
In fact, schools across the state will be sending in all kinds of school-owned instruments this summer to be cleaned, repaired, and refurbished so that they are ready to go for the next school year.
The best way to get your horn serviced during the summer is to bring it to the store. Our District Managers are visiting some schools during the summer, but not all schools and not every week. It’s very sporadic. The safe thing to do is call us first to see if arrangements can be made to drop off a loaner and pick up your instrument. You can call us at 1-800-337-0471.
If you already own an instrument from the Indy Flute Shop, give Erin a call or send her an email about borrowing a better quality loaner while yours is in for repair. And if you’ve thought about upgrading, we can also set up a trial period for a better quality flute!
