Matthias Ziemann – Flute repair in London
Matthias Ziemann is undoubtedly one of the top woodwind repairers in the United Kingdom.
He has extensive knowledge, over thirty years’ experience, and counts many top players amongst his customers.
Matthias was born to German parents and moved to Berlin when he was very young.
Both parents were accomplished musicians and Matthias showed much promise as a young boy of following in their footsteps. Matthias also had an interest and a natural ability in his practical woodworking lessons at school and showed clear dexterity with working with different materials including metals.
Matthias is a flautist himself and is modest in his practical ability.
Matthias returned to the UK when he was 19 and was taught how to repair flutes at All Flutes Plus in London. He then moved to Top Wind, London when it opened in 1991 to set up the wind repair department. Matthias married and moved back to Berlin in 1993 and worked for Werner Fischer with Duncan Crawford from All flutes Plus.
Matthias returned to the UK a few years later and set up the family home in Leicestershire working at Sheehans Music as the woodwind and brass repairer before moving back to London and Top Wind until the closure in March 2020.
