Paul Has Over 30 Years of Experience
in the Industry
Paul Morgenroth began formal instrument repair study under master technician Judi Dietz of Judi’s Woodwind Shop (Leavenworth, KS) in 1990. Paul continued this training through completion of his music education degree from the University of Kansas in 1993 and on into his teaching career. In 2008, Paul joined the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians (NAPBIRT) and officially opened his own shop, Wind Instrument Connections. Enjoying two independently successful careers, he teaches band by day and repairs for clients 7 days a week by appointment. His presentation “Identifying and Performing Quick Fixes” was well received from band directors at the Kansas Music Educators convention. His presentation “Cleanliness and Sanitation” at the Kansas Bandmasters Association (KBA) earned a subsequent invitation to present at the next KBA this July. His new WIC YouTube channel provides brief instructional videos and tips to fix common small repair issues from a band director’s perspective. Unique to the repair industry, Paul has developed WIC to offer education along with excellent repair service.

“Paul has established himself as one of the most dynamic and versatile repair technicians in the area. I have trusted him with a number of jobs that were quite important and he consistently surpassed my already high expectations.”
Stuart P. O'Neil
“Paul completes projects on a timely basis, charges a fair amount, and is extremely personable. I plan to continue taking business to him, and would readily recommend him to anyone else.”
“His quality of workmanship is consistently superior to all others. Paul uses the finest products for all his repairs and offers options depending on our needs and varieties of instruments, from student model to professional model horns.”
Paul was thorough and knowledgeable, and he took the time to really figure out the problems. He used a couple of techniques that were new to me and he silenced the key clicks that were driving me crazy! I was not only pleased with his work, but I was excited about playing on my saxophone. I highly recommend Paul and his shop for repairs on woodwind and brass instruments.
