is the founding member of the Internationally acclaimed Rameau Trio and has enjoyed an extensive performing and teaching career. These skills endow Jean with the knowledge needed to help others find just the right instrument for them. Choosing the right flute or piccolo for each individual requires a “feel” for the way a person approaches playing the flute coupled with helping them find the sound they are looking for. She has been deeply involved with consulting, purchasing and advising clients on all these aspects of choosing and purchasing both modern flutes and baroque traversos for over two decades.
Her ability to assess a client’s needs and to choose an appropriate instrument was further qualified when she was asked by a major American flute manufacturer to work for them in this same capacity. However, she decided to maintain and grow her private business as an independent consultant, using her talents as a highly respected flutist to determine “The Right Flute for the Right Flutist”.
Her services are done one on one, whether it is a parent seeking a student level flute for their child or a professional who needs a “second ear” to help them choose a flute that meets all their needs. She will consult with prospective customers, consider all their needs, including both financial and the player’s level. Her assistance may be purchased on different levels, from a simple consultation to actually finding the right instrument for an individual. To date, Jean has found that “perfect” instrument and put a smile on dozens of aspiring flutists!
As Jean represents almost every brand manufactured from around the world, she does not lean towards a particular name, but through her intensive knowledge of the different characteristics inherent within each maker, she is able to guide the client to what she thinks will work best. However, should a client desire any certain brand, she is happy to comply and will find that flute and others the client may compare with. This is what makes HOWTOBUYAFLUTE.COM unique in our industry. Being an independent she has access to all brands. And all her new flutes come with a one-year warranty, backed by both Jean and the manufacturer.
With so many changes in flute technology, and innovation incorporated in the designs of flutes and piccolos, Jean is constantly playing and assessing instruments new to the market. This attention to detail, plus her instinctive and technical abilities, give her the edge needed to separate great, well-built instruments from those not made as well, thus assuring you of the best possible choice for your needs and budget.
