The Orff Doctor


A xylophone, recovering post-surgery after being dropped on the floor

Have some damaged instruments in the closet? You’re in luck! Margaret O’Hara-Best is our resident Orff Doctor, and she makes house calls. Margaret can fix problems as small as replacing nails and tubing to fixing a very damaged bass xylophone dropped on the floor. Parts are sold at cost, and labor is a nominal fee.


We are also happy to endorse our chapter member Kris Curtis, a formally trained Orff repair person with a business out of Westport. Please contact him directly if you are interested in having him to repairs for your school! His email address is
