|Ian Robinson is in charge of the Guitar / String workshops. As well as being a professional musician and an instrument tech for
over 15 years, he has worked for Mikes Music Ltd for many years and is one of
the longest serving member of staff.
He loves all string instruments and takes a real pride in his work. You can
ring and speak with him during shop hour if you have a problem on 01243 821 434.
He is well known and trusted by local amateur and professional players. Ian
works in the belief that all instruments should be easily playable no matter
how little they cost. Much of his working day is spent giving advice and setting
up the actions on instruments to make them as playable and responsive as possible.
He personally oversees all of our string repairs.
This would be enough music in the day for most folk, but, like many of Mike's staff seems to live for music both on and off duty. He plays in three groups, ‘Sixfifteen’, ‘Laughing Gravy' and the ‘Fabulous Tomato Bros’ using both mandolin and acoustic guitar.
