Musical Instrument Repairers and Tuners


Wages vary depending on geographic area and the worker's specialty, skill, and speed at making repairs. Full-time instrument repairers and tuners had a median income of $36,330 in May 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The highest paid 10 percent earned $59,020 or more per year, and the lowest paid earned less thanĀ $22,700 annually. Some helpers work for the training they get and receive no pay. Repairers and tuners who are self-employed earn more than those who work for music stores or instrument manufacturers, but their income is generally less stable. Repairers who gain an international reputation for the quality of their work earn the highest income in this field.
