Back Repairing in 2018

The new year will find me working out of the same location, but under a new banner.  The Lakewood Music Collective will reopen on Jan 8th, 2018 where Vance Music Studios have been for 12 years.  Same place, new name.  The best place to learn how to play an instrument in this part of the city, and beyond.  Chris Parsons will be taking over from Chris Vance, and we all trust that  Mr Parsons will be able to build on the legacy that Mr. Vance has initiated at this location.  I was thrown in with the change, so I'll still be here.

  The Studios are open Monday through Thursday from 2-9pm, Saturdays from 10am to 2pm; Closed on Fridays & Sundays.  Drop-offs can be made within open hours.  I'm working the desk still on Tuesday evenings from 5-9pm.  There are a few transitional things that are being worked out, but things are pretty much the same for me.  Consultations on anything guitar, bass, fretted instrument or repair work can be arranged at this location in half-hour intervals.
