Our Commitment

We also take pride in providing quality products and service. 


About Us

In 1985, we began Ingram & Brauns Musik Shoppe as an instrument repair shop.  We quickly expanded our services to include rentals and a modest retail house. Soon we went on the road to service local schools and bring rentals and repairs to music stores who could use our services.  Today we have two stores that not only offer repairs and rentals, but house more than 40 teachers who serve more than 1000 students a week.  

       - John & Bernhard




I tour the world and the U.S.A. yearly and that places great demands on my saxes and other winds. Playability must be tight and right for every concert performance. Since 1987 I continue to take my instruments to Ingram and Brauns (Modesto Ca.) for expert and professional repair and maintenance. They stand behind their workmanship and make sure it is right before you have left. Ingram and Brauns Music Shop if “you need to get it done”.

Instructor Tip

Play with purpose. Always have something to say with your instrument whether it’s an idea, story or emotion.
