Company history

Jim Sheppard began the Brass & Woodwind Shop in Carnegie, PA in 1975. It quickly developed a reputation with professional musicians all over the country. In its 20 years of operation, the shop serviced area schools and musicians with quality rentals, sales and repairs.

In 1995, Jim joined the Volkweins family and continued to service his existing customer base. This allowed him to expanded his services to include Jazz Clinics, Repair Clinics, and 1-on-1 instructional sessions with music instructors on woodwind repair techniques.

Today, Jim Sheppard operates Jim Sheppard Music in Perryopolis, PA. The repair shop focuses on horn work and specializes in quality woodwind repair using the latest techniques.
