I had an amazing experience at the Flute Center and I'd be glad to share it:
Being a newcomer to the flute scene, I was fortunate to find myself in New York with a little free time on my hands. Although I have always loved music, I have had only a few short relationships with various instruments. Now that I've found the flute, I know she's the one!
The folks at the Flute Center showed me their immense collection of fabulous flutes and allowed me to try a few. As I was stumbling my way through a few songs, I heard a beautiful string of notes flowing from the main room. I came out to find Emmanuel Pahud and was treated to a mini master class. It was all the motivation I needed to get back in my practice room and grow.
Thanks for what you guys do and how you do it.

What a treat! Not only to meet one of my heroes in David Robinson, but to get to introduce "The Admiral" to Emmanuel Pahud, an icon in the Flute Industry and a role model for David. A very special moment, indeed! The flute just got a whole lot cooler!
