Meet Our Team

Introducing Our Horn Hospital Team

You may be a soloist, but you have an entire band here to support you!

Meet Our Team - Jim

Jim opened Horn Hospital, LLC in 1979. He began his career as a band instrument technician in 1976 as a student at Western Iowa College in Sioux City, Iowa. After finishing the course of study in band instrument repair, Jim took a job as a shop technician with a full-line music store in Enid, Oklahoma. After two years with this company, it was time for Jim to move back east and open Horn Hospital, L.L.C. When not at the shop, Jim can be found in his hangar restoring vintage airplanes.
