About Flute Specialists


President and CEO Robert Johnson founded Flute Specialists, Inc. A skilled flutist and visual artist studying painting, sculpture, printmaking, and metalsmithing, Robert was selected to work with Muramatsu USA, where he served as a chief technician. While working for Muramatsu, Robert trained in flute repair at the Shinjuku factory in Japan.

After ten years, Robert Johnson noted a great national need for dedicated, skilled, and trained technicians. He further realized that many flutists would like to buy their flute from a company that could also repair and maintains the instrument for them in the years to come. It was out of this idea to have an all-in-one flute specialty company that Flute Specialists, Inc. was born.
