"Katy Hopkins is an outstanding instrument repair technician – she has worked on my professional flute and piccolo as well as those of my students for many, many years. Being a musician herself, she understands the necessity
to have instruments in the best playing condition possible. She is reliable and prompt with her work and will “tweak” any adjustments you might request, as well as help you immediately if you have an emergency repair
you need done spur of the moment. The most impressive job she has done for me is a complete rebuild of an old, worn out bass flute that had seen many years of neglect. Katy turned it into a responsive instrument
with a gorgeous sound, amazing for a bass flute! I highly recommend Katy for your instrument repairs!"

her services to anyone seeking professional woodwind repair."
