Brass Technician in the Vancouver location

While Alex is our newest technician, he's actually been a member of the Beacock Music family since 2008, when he began working as a shop assistant while attending Clark College. In this position, he demonstrated a high aptitude for repair and developed a keen interest in learning the trade. After completing his studies at Clark in 2012, he transferred to Renton Technical College, where he completed the certificate program in Band Instrument Repair Technology in June 2013.

As our resident low-brass geek, Alex plays tuba, trombone, and euphonium. We're pleased to have him back with us. He's rapidly expanding his skills as he works alongside our senior technicians, who find his quirky sense of humor a great asset!
