Woodwind Repair Service

Melk Music has been the leader in providing quality repairs to the Milwaukee area since 1956.

We repair all woodwind instruments for Schools, Individual Musicians, and Rental Accounts. Bring your instrument to the store or if your student's school is on our free delivery route, simply call us and we'll pick it up from your school. You can also schedule a repair pick-up online.
