About Chris Moller, Agave Music Owner and Lead Technician

Chris is an Arizona native born in Tucson , AZ. He graduated from Cactus High School in Glendale, AZ. After earning a certificate in Musical Instrument Repair from Renton Technical College, he completed a six-year apprenticeship at Beacock Music  in Vancouver, Washington. It is here that Chris gained invaluable skills working under highly trained experienced technicians including master technician Jerry Porter.   In 2004, Chris returned to Arizona to work for All Star Music and Music and Arts Center until opening Agave Music in the summer of 2010.

Chris is a professional member in good standing of the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians (Napbirt) and has been for over 14 consecutive years. Napbirt is an “educational association dedicated to the advancement of the craft of band instrument repair”.  While there are few requirements to join Napbirt, active members are constantly receiving further training to better serve their customers.  Generations of experience are shared through many hours of clinics and workshops.  This abundance of knowledge can only be received through Napbirt membership and is essential to gaining the expertise that students, teachers and players should expect from trained technicians. Chris has attended 6 national educational conferences, 7 regional clinics, and has taught 2 regional clinics himself.
