VIDEO: Keeping Glenview in Tune

Odd Jobs visits Glenview's Total Music to check out instrument repair.

has it all: sheet music, lessons, instrument rental and sales. And when an instrument needs to be fixed before a big concert, they turn to skilled repairmen to get the job done.

Total Music owner Gary Karner handles woodwind repair. However, if a bass breaks down, a cello crashes,  or a violin gets run over by a car, he turns to William Hoffman.

A Glenview Native, Hoffman has dedicated his life to repairing all shapes and sizes of string instruments. He's even built a few himself. 

Odd Jobs had a chance to sit down with him to learn more about it.

Total Music is a wonderful store with 2 great proprietors Gary and Frank. They have a great sheet music selection. Bill Hoffmann does great repairs and is an upcoming maker. I play on one of his violas and the sound is very full and rich.
