Oral History Information
Domingos Caeiro has always been interested in the mechanics of brass and woodwind instruments. He received training in Paris and moved to Portugal in the hopes of establishing his career. When he found it difficult to find work in other shops, he decided to open up his own. Slowly his workshop evolved into a musical instrument store with an instrument repair workshop in the back. In addition to his store and repair shop, Domingos started an apprenticeship program to teach the craft to others. Over his 30-plus years in business, Domingos has taught many technicians and continues to work alongside them every day.
