Dear Fellow Flutist,

Welcome to my website. Whether you’re preparing for an audition, coming back to the flute or piccolo after a protracted absence, or trying to get your instrument to play its absolute best, I can assist you in reaching your goals. In addition to coaching and instruction, I also am a certified repair and maintenance specialist.

I became a flutist at age ten and began playing professionally at age seventeen. Over the last 43 years, I have learned a lot about playing, teaching and caring for quality instruments. To learn more about my background or see what others have to say about Lagerquist Flute Service, please feel free to explore the other pages of my website.

I am not a dealer and do not sell instruments; therefore, if you are shopping for a new flute or piccolo, I would be happy to provide you with a candid and independent opinion. Let my experience be your resource. Whether your flute concern is musical or mechanical, I can help. Over the years I have learned what works and why. I can be your second set of ears, as well as your “pit-crew”. My company is Lagerquist Flute Service, Inc. My mission is to serve you in any flute related capacity.

-John Lagerquist
