Welcome to the Woodwind Project and thank you for visiting our site. The Woodwind Project in Shelby Township, Michigan, is a band instrument repair shop, established in 2008.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality repairs to students and professionals alike. We take pride in our quick turnaround time and personalized customer service. Many repairs can be done on the same day, or even while you wait.
Don LePage is the owner and head technician of the Woodwind Project. He attended Shenandoah College and Conservatory of Music and the University of Michigan studying clarinet performance. During that time, he studied with Dr. Steven K. Johnston at Shenandoah, Dr. John Mohler at University of Michigan, and Leon Russianoff in New York City.
He has performed with many of Southeast Michigan’s orchestras on clarinet and bass clarinet, as well as performing with the DSO and Omaha symphonies on bagpipes.
Don started his repair career at Sam Ash Music in New York in 1984. He moved to Michigan in 1986 and has been working in Southeast Michigan ever since. Although he provides excellent repairs on brass instruments, his specialty is woodwinds, with an emphasis on top-level work on professional clarinets and saxophones. Having played to a professional level and by working with many professional saxophone and clarinet players, he knows the needs of the pro performer and strives to provide the performing musician with the best playing and longest lasting instrument possible.
At the Woodwind Project, we provide everything from basic playing condition repairs, to complete restorations of antique instruments. We hope to see you soon. Comments or questions? Visit us on Facebook.
