Quentin Blumenroeder first trained as an instrument maker in a restoring and manufacturing company of mechanical musical instruments like pianolas, limonaires or barrel organs for three years. This experience enabled him to get familiar with pneumatic action systems.

He then spent seven years working in the workshop of Rémy Mahler where he helped build numerous new organs and service and restore existing ones.

 

He soon after received his degree (CAP) in organ manufacturing and later won the SEMA Grand Prix Régional des Métiers d’Art (Regional Grand Prize of the Professions of the Arts and Crafts).  He went on perfecting his training working alongside Bernard Aubertin, an organ maker in Courtefontaine, in Jura, France, for a full year.

Also, he regularly visited the workshops of Emile Jobin, a harpsichord maker in Paris, to learn to master the age-old techniques (glue and finish) he values so much.
