Who we are

About us

Our School for Musical Instrument Building, called "Centrum voor Muziekinstrumentenbouw" (Cmb), based at Puurs, Belgium, is a training and documentation resources centre whose aim it is to spread and promote the knowledge and the richness of the craft.

We train people to become true professionals in the art of musical instrument making and we provide opportunities for both those who either wish to top up their existing skills and those who wish to attend a particular session, workshop or lecture.

The centre enjoys an international reputation which is brought into focus by the participation of enthusiastic musicians and instrument makers, national and foreign, at our international symposium "c o r d e F a c t u m”.
This event contributes to the development of an international World-Wide network for the manufacturing of musical instruments.
