Nicole Bezaire - Owner and Technician
As a graduate of Keyano College's Band Instrument Repair Program, Nicole has trained under technicians with decades of experience. Before starting Bell & Brace, Nicole began working as a technician first outside of Toronto, Ontario, followed by five years outside of Vancouver, B.C. 
With ten years of experience (and counting!) Nicole is happy to offer professional repairs and advice, and is incredibly proud to be working with the musicians of Windsor and Essex County.



Gavin Hoenmans - Part-Time Technician
From Lloydminster, Alberta, Gavin has been involved with music from a very early age, trombone being his instrument of choice. Gavin completed two years at Keyano College in their Band Instrument Repair Program, and has since repaired in Vancouver and Nanaimo, B.C., as well as Montreal, Quebec. Though he's not here all the time, when it's busy in the shop, you'll likely find him working at a bench or behind the counter!
