Eastern School of Fretted Instrument Repair
Freehold, New Jersey
The Eastern School of Fretted Instrument Repair is a comprehensive 20 week program that teaches students not only how to repair guitars but how to build and run their own guitar repair business.
"The curriculum is laid out into weekly instructional blocks where the student will work on and learn the assigned skill set and will be tested with a bench test at the end of each instructional block. Our students leave ready to work, not just with a certificate and a handshake. Students are taught to repair guitars and basses at a level that will ensure their ability to not only survive, but to thrive in a fast paced and very competitive world of music instruments sales and service. The Eastern School of Fretted Instrument Repair is approved by the New Jersey Department of Education and Department of Labor and Workforce Development, in addition to being approved by the NJ State Approving Agency for Veterans Training."
A career in lutherie starts with the right tools. We serve leading lutherie schools by supplying their students with tools of the trade. The students benefit by owning and mastering specialized professional tools that will serve them well in their careers. Each school has developed a list of required StewMac tools that are essential to their coursework.
For the majority of aspiring guitarmakers who will never attend a lutherie school, these lists are valuable recommendations. Whether you're an apprentice, or starting out on your own, we make it easy to order the same tools trusted by veteran instructors.
