I hadn't updated the site since my medical proceedure because I'm already buried again in work.  I'm running between 2-3 weeks behind right now.  Your best bet, if you would like my assitance, is to get your instrument in line.  It's first come, first served.  Providing there's a way to actually finish your instrument once started.  Many pieces get out of line because of a missing set of strings, or parts, or the nature of the repair itself.  I do the best I can to keep people happy, but there is going to be a wait of some kind.

I seem to have created a job for as long as I can do it, but I can't do what I used to.  The volume of my output has shrunk, but I'm still mighty picky about what goes out the door.
Many thanks to all who have kept me going.  Keep practicing, and loving your instrument.  Music is prayer.

The LMC is open Mon-Thurs 2:00-7:00pm, at least.  Sometimes later, depending on lessons.  You will want to check Saturday hours regularily, as I have no idea what they are.

I'm still trying to get my consulting, and lesson availability off the ground.  Anyone who wants to pick my brain is invited to do so.  Just can't give it away anymore.  Half hour slots can be booked thrugh the LMC at regular lesson prices.
