Repair Services

At Sax Alley our business developed around our repair shop. Our reputation is built on quality repair for discriminating players. 

The owner of Sax Alley, Timothy Glesmann, has been repairing for over 30 years and repairing nothing but saxophones for over 28 years at Sax Alley.   He learned instrument repair through an apprenticeship program and additional study.  Any repairs not personally done by Timothy are meticulously checked over to be sure they meet Sax Alley’s high standard of excellence.

Timothy obtained a Bachelors Degree in Music Education from Hasting College and a Masters Degree in Saxophone Performance from the University of Northern Colorado where he studied under Roger Greenberg and played in the award winning #1 Jazz Ensemble under jazz education legend, Gene Aitken.  He was also a Jazz Teaching Assistant while earning his degree at UNC. 

After graduating he played professionally and led his own 17-piece Big Band, “Resurrected Swing”, which performed for many years along the Northern Colorado Front Range.  Timothy has played with such artists as Louie Bellson, James Moody, Jon Faddis, Matt Cattingub, Bobby McFerrin, The Guy Lombardo Orchestra, The Four Freshman and others.

Repair Tech Shawna Glendenning was with Sax Alley for 19 years.  Shawna obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Clarinet Performance under Bill Jackson (  She also played with the University of Northern Colorado’s award winning #1 Jazz Ensemble on alto saxophone while earning her degree.
