Learn from the best. Greg Raynard has been repairing guitars professionally since 1984. He is one of only a few skilled people in the world who is qualified to make instrument repairs and also knows his electronics. He does design work as well as repair work, and may be the only person teaching both guitar and tube amp repair.
Learn by doing. I teach the theory behind repairs at the repair bench. Bootcampers have full access to the shop, the repair bench, and what I know. After being shown how its done, it's your turn. and I'll be right there for you during and after your bootcamp experience.
Know what you can. The certificates page details what can be taught, tested, and certified. The certificates are awarded in duplicate: one framed, and one loose for your portfolio. Students are only charged for testing time if they are not Bootcampers.
Craftsmanship is taught here. I teach you how to take on jobs that you have
never done, to approach them in such a way that guarantees fine
quality results. While guitar builders seldom have repair skills,
and many do not know how to set-up an instrument, there can be
no shame. Many repairmen have never built a guitar. They often
have conflicting ways of completing a task. This can be explained
when you examine each ones level of understanding of craftsmanship.
You don't know what you don't know. My craftsmanship approach
is for everyone.
If you even think your motivated now! I have built-in
incentives for you to push me even harder!
Businesses, parents, and bootcampers have all benefited from the Bootcamp. Enable-minded, self-motivated, knowledgeable, skilled folks come out of here. No better training can be hoped for.
