Thank you so much Dr. Dan and his wonderful crew for the amazing time and learning experience at CIOMIT. All the fellow students were fantastic and always willing to offer a helping hand. The culture and atmosphere at CIOMIT are incredible. I hadn't had so much fun in a class before!

A brief background about myself. I have no music background, knew absolutely nothing about any musical instruments, didn't even know the names of the parts of all the musical instruments. I signed up for the brass power course and basic woodwind course; with zero knowledge of music. I walked away with a load of new information, motivation to learn music and be a great repairman.

Dan was so patient with me. He was more than willing to share tricks of the repairing trade, superb at explaining and demonstrating. He is one of the most passionate teachers that I've ever met. His main objective is not just for his students to learn but to master the skills.

During my 2 weeks CIOMIT, I learnt more than what was stated in the syllabus. Whenever an interesting/ unique repair entered the shop, he would show it to us. That is the best teaching moment you can ever get.

Again, thank you so much and hope I'll have a chance to visit CIOMIT in the near future.



"Absolutely fantastic training. I want to thank Dan and his crew for the outstanding training during the one-week brass power course I completed June 7-12, 2015. The course was way beyond my expectations. Valve adjustments, dent removal, correct soldering techniques, trombone slide adjustments, rotary valve adjustments, lathing, magnetic dent removal and more were all part of this wonderful and eye opening one week course. I learned more in one week at CIOMIT than I learned in a college semester, no kidding. Utterly mind blowing experience. Everyone, from the administrative staff to fellow students were friendly and more than willing to help teach proper repair techniques. What I appreciated the most was that there was no reluctance to teach all there is to know about a particular method of repair. Dan and everyone else wanted me to succeed and become a professional repairman. I highly recommend this training. Once again, thank you Dan."
