Clarke Strings & Sound is the culmination of over ten years of training and work in the music industry surrounding Washington, D.C.  While earning my fine arts degree in English Literature at the University of Maryland, I started servicing Fender Rhodes electric pianos and quickly developed a passion for repairing electro-mechanical instruments. After building my first replica Rhodes "Piano Bass" for a professional pianist in Germany, I branched into guitar repair work, and later, restoration. I refined my skills over the years practicing guitar repairs at Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center, where I became a Certified Repair Technician for Fender and Taylor guitars. Now I've opened this shop to bring my experience home to the DMV music community!
