In the heart of the capital it is an ideal place to get well informed about novelties and all the diversities the clarinet can offer.
At Le CdB there is only one person you deal with:
Welcoming (reception) , repairing, advice, expertise … you deal with Béatrice.
It was in 2003 that B started her apprenticeship for the repairing and maintenance of wind instruments.
She was hired by a big Paris workshop and thanks to the help of her tutor (who now works for the famous Selmer manufacture), she found her place within a team of technical and commercial specialists of wind instruments.
Thanks to a solid musical training at the Versailles music academy, and a constant practice of the clarinet she was given the responsibility of the simple reeds within the team while still improving with bassoons and oboes.
In 2006, the VdN workshop called her to develop the workshop branch of the Lille store. There the team grew bigger with the arrival of Marc Batteau, a real specialist of the saxophone.
Meanwhile, B kept practicing her instrument. As she did not favor a specific musical ensemble, she put a lot in both symphonic orchestras, wind orchestras, folkloric bands….
In 2008, with the help of her former boss, B decided to open a new place dedicated to woodwind instruments and more specifically to the clarinet in Paris.
The CdB was born.
