Lewis Mace Started playing saxophone at 18 years old and after two years of playing decided to go back to college to study music, completing one year of popular music and then two years of Jazz. Then after spending time playing Soprano, Alto, Tenor and even Baritone in different bands he became inspired watching his local repairer and decided that he would like to learn to make and repair woodwind instruments. He proceeded to enroll at Newark college where he studied Woodwind Making & Repair, hand building a complete Boehm system clarinet and leaning to repair and maintain all the woodwind family and also studying Engineering and tool making where he learnt to make his own tools.Fun Fact: Lewis loves guitars more than saxophones.
Mark has been working at the London store since it first opened in Denmark street after completing The Woodwind making and repair course at Newark. He is the longest serving member of the London staff and over this time has gained many years of valuable experience working with a wide range of horns from many different eras. He particularly enjoys restoring vintage horns and key-work modification.Fun Fact: Mark has served many famous players but remains completely oblivious to who they are.

Following the completion of her degree, she continued studying for a further three years on the Woodwind Making & Repair course at Newark College, graduating with Distinction in 2008. Since then, she has continued to develop her skills working as a full time woodwind technician in three well-respected workshops before joining us in 2018.Fun Fact: Helen likes to compete in unlicensed boxing matches
