All instrument maintenance, repairs, and restorations are performed or supervised in shop by business founder Stephen Beekman. Mr. Beekman received his training at the University of New Hampshire under such masters as Hans Nebel, Horst Klost, and Lynn Hannings. He has been caring for stringed instruments in the local community since 1982.




“I have been going to Steve for my repairs for many years and have always been thrilled with his work.  Steve isn’t happy until you are completely satisfied.  I have also recommended him to my students.  Steve is a really honest man and I love doing business with him.”
