The National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians (NAPBIRT) is the largest non-profit international educational association dedicated to the advancement of the craft of band instrument repair.

The mission of NAPBIRT is to promote the highest possible standards of musical instrument repair service by providing members with a central agency for the exchange of information and continued education through the administration of programs that benefit its membership. We do not provide certification, testing, or endorsement of any individual member’s abilities.

Founded in 1976 as a small grassroots organization of 45 members with a common goal of technical integrity and professionalism, NAPBIRT has since blossomed into an open friendly international organization of over 1300 members located in over 20 countries.
