"Good technicians are few and far between, so to have Natasha Port of ABI Music in my home city is an absolute godsend. She has serviced oboes, repaired cracks, and even made keys for my instruments over the years, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to amateurs and professionals alike."

"After many years of traveling to a trusted repairman in the US, I was delighted discover a meticulous and dedicated technician in Auckland, Natasha Port.
I am so grateful to Natasha, and the team at ABI, for working hard to accommodate my particular needs. We oboists are notoriously fussy. She has
worked wonders on my oboes - and my student’s ones, too. We are so fortunate to have an expert like Natasha in New Zealand to care for our instruments."

"Due to a hand injury, I required major modifications to the foot joint on my flute. Natasha and Andrew were very helpful and took on the task that some other repair technicians had deemed impossible.
Natasha designed and manufactured the perfect solution. I would highly recommend ABI Music to anyone requiring woodwind repairs or servicing."
"We were delighted to welcome Natasha into the Music Department at Nayland College, Nelson where she completed 4 days of repairs and maintenance on a vast range of instruments ....
... Natasha was utterly professional, fun to have around, did a wonderful job and we would ABSOLUTELY have her back.
