Regular cleaning and maintenance is essential to keeping your instrument in proper working order. It is recommended to have your instrument inspected and serviced by a repair technician during a break in school so you do not miss any rehearsal time. The inspection may not result in any work being needed. However, just like an automobile it is recommended that a repair technician perform a tune-up as necessary to keep your instrument in proper working order.
All instruments should be cleaned on a routine basis - about once a month. See these videos for help.
