From the beginning ...
Ozwinds Brass and Woodwind owner, Brian Ebert, a qualified brass and woodwind technician, with his wife Liz opens Brass N Woodwind Workshop in 1989. This was a service and repair facility located in Glenhuntly, Victoria.
One year later, the workshop was relocated to a larger premise at 572 North Road Ormond, Victoria.
Around 1992 the workshop slowly evolved into a retail store, primarily selling used quality brass and woodwind instruments and then later moving into new instruments shortly before it became a company called Melbourne Brass and Woodwind Centre P/L
The Ozwinds Brass and Woodwind online website began in 2003 and continues to prosper today with new and changing products.
Brian, Liz and with their eldest son Aaron who is also learning the craft of instrument repairs and restoration, (in between his university studies), continue to build the reputation of the store.
Opening in 2006, managed and run by Andrew Berrington, formerly of FORWINDS.
Andy is the owner and head technician of Blow Brass and Woodwind Repairs.
