About Us

The Music Room Workshop is a family business run by Andrew & Robert Durand, specialist makers and restorers of Early Keyboard Instruments.

We offer new harpsichords, spinets, clavichords and virginals for sale from stock or to commission, together with our selected stock of antique instruments including early grand and square pianos, in addition to our comprehensive restoration and maintenance services.

Andrew Durand has over forty years experience of making and repairing Early Keyboard Instruments. As a school-leaver in 1973 he joined Arnold Dolmetsch Ltd. where he served a four year apprenticeship in Musical Instrument and Cabinet making. When the company closed in 1981 Andrew established his own workshop, and after several moves now occupies the old granary at Prestwick Farm in Chiddingfold, Surrey. His son Robert joined the business in 2001.
