Suzy Farber, Repair Technician

Repair Technician

Suzy Farber is a flute repair apprentice under the guidance of Phil Unger. She became intrigued by the trade in 2013 after watching Shelly Tanabe of Wind Player Services work on her flute. After that experience, she apprenticed with Shelly over several summers and breaks from college, mainly focusing on clarinets. She served four years with the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing Band in San Diego where she performed on flute and piccolo throughout the US. While stationed in San Diego, she continued to learn about repairs with the instrument repair technician on staff. During that time, she also held a position as a director on the San Diego Flute Guild Board. Prior to working at Flute Center, she apprenticed with Luke Panella at the Buffet Crampon showroom, where she began focusing solely on flute repair. Suzy previously studied flute performance at Indiana University, and is now finishing her degree at Brooklyn College where her focus is on music technology.
