Orchestral and chamber musicians from around North America as well as international touring musicians have chosen Jeff's Woodwind Shop as the preferred shopto get repairs and maintenance. Areas of speciality include the repair of handmade flutes and piccolos, repair and improvement of professional saxophones, and restoration of grenadilla instruments.  Jeff's Woodwind Shop is one of the few shops in the world with extensive experience repairing flutes from the critical transition period of the mid 19th century

While there are many fine repair shops where your instrument will be made to play how it was designed, there are very few shops where your instrument will be repaired to play how you require. Jeff's Woodwind Shop is one of these shops: a haven for players who are very sensitive to how their instrument plays.

Jeff Dening has been repairing musical instruments professionally for over 25 years. He has worked in and operated repair shops in 6 states, studying with some of the most discriminating and demanding technicians in the field. Also a trained machinist, Jeff combines these skills, his deep experience with the precision and history of hand made flutes, and his background as a concert saxophonist to create solutions and provide results that keep the most discriminating musicians returning year after year.

Jeff regularly repairs instruments for professional musicians such as members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, The President's Own United States Marine Band, The United States Army Band ("Pershing's Own"), The United States Navy Band, The United States Air Force Band,  The Buffalo Philharmonic, The Rochester Philharmonic, The Atlanta Symphony, and Apollo's Fire, as well as faculty and students of noted conservatories such as The Juilliard School, The Manhattan School of Music, Peabody Conservatory, The Eastman School of Music, and Oberlin College.
