After lots of fantastic feedback following the Flutation 2016 trade show and concert, we are absolutely delighted to again welcome the Central Coast’s Flute Repairer extraordinaire for Flutation 2017!
Victoria Rika-Heke from Repairs on the Hill will be on hand at our trade display and final concert to answer all your questions regarding instrument servicing and repairs.
Victoria started playing the flute at the age of 10 and learnt from performer Paul Curtis during her years in Singleton. Once finishing high school she attended The Australian Institute Of Music in Sydney, under the tutelage of Danielle Eden and achieved a Advanced Diploma in Flute Performance.
After dabbling in instrument repairs for a few years when she first moved to the Northern Beaches, Victoria finished her diploma and got a full time job at Flute Fidelity (now Flutes & Flutists) and Musicorp / Billy Hydes. Through them she was trained by Australasia’s best flute technician Angus McEwan (Flutes & Flutists) and spent time learning and perfecting the craft of clarinet and saxophone repairs from Andy Berrington and his team at Blow Woodwind & Brass in Queensland. She later learnt brass repairs and now handles anything from a piccolo to a tuba! Victoria repairs everything brass and woodwind, student and professional.
Repairs on the Hill is now based in Kariong, NSW offering a fantastic and accessible option for Central Coast Residents with instruments requiring servicing and/or repairs!
