We feel that we offer the best of both worlds working with our in house repair staff, Ben Davis, as well as being an affiliate drop off for North Georgia Band, owned by Michael and Keren Barr. From student to professional models, the Barr's offer expert repair with the latest technology and tools available. Both Keren and Michael are proud members of NAPIRT and our hope is to hold educator sessions in the area of repair. For most repairs, there is generally a 2-3 day turn around time. School pickup is also available. Please email us to schedule a pick up at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 770-671-0517.

An Atlanta native, Keren is the other half of the ownership team of North Georgia Band.

Keren is a Muramatsu and Straubinger certified flute technician, training with Paul Rabinov and David Straubinger and has also been an active member of NAPBIRT since 2004. Keren stays very involved within the musical community; she is a flautist for the Northwinds Symphonic Band, plays double seconds for Atlanta’s Steel Dreamin’ Steel Band, and sings in the choir at McEver Road UMC. She resides in Atlanta with her husband Michael, daughter Miranda, and their cats Clancy and Lucy, and Andre, a retired racing greyhound.
