Paul Harrington, Flute Arts

Foley, Alabama USA  |


Paul Harrington is a co-founder of Flute Arts and has been serving the flute community in that capacity since 2000. He began the study of flute repair in 1974 and apprenticed as a flutemaker at Brannen Brothers in the early 1990s with Janet Kinmonth, before achieving the highest level of flutemaking called Mastercraft. His duties at Brannen included finishing flutes, quality control, and headjoint testing. As Manager of the Brannen Finishing Department, he trained many Brannen finishers, some of whom still work with our company. 


Through the years, he has developed an international reputation for excellence among flute players, repair technicians, and flutemakers. We are thrilled to have Flute Arts onboard as our adjunt repair facility.  We are confident that Paul will provide, in a more immediate timeframe, the high quality repair and service for which we and Paul are known.
