Oral History Information
Chuck Kessler enjoys teaching the craft of instrument repair. He enjoys working on instruments to bring each one to top playing ability and seeing the faces of the musicians when their favorite horn is playing better than ever. As a member of NAPBIRT, Chuck has also worked hard to elevate the training and testing for band instrument technicians to ensure his craft continues to evolve and develop. In 1989 he opened his own repair shop, which soon included his sons and branched out into retail sales. Today those traditions continue along with a growing presence on the Internet.
