This is an opt-in email newsletter. If you wish to receive newsletters from PROBIRT via email, check the "Newsletter" box in your profile.

More streaming videos were added to the site in the past week. Jeff Dening of St. Louis, MO does a nice job covering a variety of tips and tricks in a set of videos. Topics include:
- Corking keys quickly
- Sealing head joint corks
- Straightening bent flute bodies
- Pulling stuck slides
- Burnishing tricks
- Making corks pads
- And more…
And if you haven’t checked out the other recently added videos yet, Larry Mueller has some very informative clinics on clarinet repair, cork padding, and finding oboe leaks.

We encourage everyone to share their knowledge and expertise. Anyone who writes an article or participates in a Video Tour (info forthcoming) will receive a free annual membership. Contact us at for more information and guidelines.

Live, online clinics are being scheduled. We need to know what the best time is for you to attend. Take the poll located in the left column,
and tell us what will work best for you. Poll will be open until February 1, 2006.
