Extraordinary Associate of the Month: Flute Authority Repair Team

flute authority repair teamFlute Authority is a division of West Music Company, Inc. that specializes in the sale and maintenance of professional level flutes. West Music’s involvement in professional level flutes date back to the 1950’s when our founder Pearl West designed and built the first Westwind flute. Since then, Flute Authority has become the North American distributor of several important brands including Trevor James Flutes, Sankyo Flutes, Miyazawa, and lefreQue sound bridge.

One aspect that sets Flute Authority apart is that all repairs happen in-house at our Coralville, IA location. In preparation for being temporarily short-handed the Flute Authority Repair Team – Tonya Adams, Lauren Carr, and Erik Swanson – went to great lengths to coordinate schedules and worked extra hours so that they could meet our stock needs.

They all consistently demonstrate great teamwork, and on top of that are always willing to help with whatever is needed! At one point, Erik and Lauren even tag-teamed setting up a flute in record time so that it could still be shipped that same afternoon (not our typical protocol!).

Speaking of going above and beyond, Lauren took time away from the repair bench and traveled to Judy’s Flute Party (yes, it is a real thing!) with record-setting sales at that annual event. Thanks for always working hard, Flute Authority Repair Team!!

As told by Cathy Miller,
V.P./Director of Flute Authority
