Today our guest on the podcast is Miles DeCastro who is the repair technician for the Crane School of Music and the owner of a store and repair centre called North Country Winds. We discuss many maintenance and repair topics of interest to clarinet players ranging from how to find a great technician, to whether cracks are truly the end of the world, the importance of preventative maintenance, and some handy items you should keep in your case in the event that you need to do your own repairs in a pinch.
