Jonathan Hein is an experienced craftsman, having repaired flutes for more than twenty years. Following an apprenticeship in flute repair he has maintained an independent, Straubinger certified workshop. Clients include musicians from all walks, including professional symphony musicians, top educators, avid amateurs and beginning students. Jonathan continually seeks to expand his knowledge of instrument construction and maintenance by attending seminars and collaborating with other technicians and flute makers.
A flutist and avid collector, Jonathan has a small but growing assortment of vintage, Boehm-system flutes and piccolos. He dedicates much of his spare time to their restoration. He holds degrees from Miami University (Oxford, Ohio), the University of Cincinnati and, a life-long learner, continues his education at St. Catherine University.
As technical director, Jonathan is able to address most any repair crisis: from minor adjustments, to body work, to complete restorations. Trust him to provide an accurate estimate of both time and cost to complete a reliable repair. In a pinch, twist his arm and he'll take a look at your clarinet, oboe or saxophone and provide referrals for a more thorough evaluation.
