Karl Koehler

Band Instrument Technician
Hazel Dell

When it comes to experience, Karl is your guy! He has spent the last 25 years working as a repair technician in various environments.   He graduated from Texas State University with a degree in trumpet performance and later went on to complete the BIRT program at Western Iowa Tech Community College.  The following years he spent at Strait Music in Austin, Texas and then eventually settled here in the northwest by 2002.  Karl officially joined our staff in 2011 but had done side jobs for Music World the previous 8 years.  When it comes to band instrument repair, there’s rarely a subject he doesn’t know about.  He takes pride in detailed and efficient work on instruments and is always willing to answer questions for customers.  Karl plays in some local groups in his free time and also has a cat, not named Mozart!
