The Woodwind Group

The story of The Woodwind Group is the story of people passionate about music; making music and making musical instruments.

The first flute specialist company in Australia was started in the late 1970s by John Lehner. Seeing a need for high quality support for Australia’s flute players, John established the company in his name to repair and retail quality instruments at every level of flute. Following an overseas research sabbatical, Mr Lehner returned to Sydney and established “Flute Makers of Australia” to hand craft flutes and flute head joints.

The Woodwind group will again have a display at Flutation 2017!  Be sure to stop by their display, have a chat, and view their beautiful instruments.

Repairs on the Hill

Repairs on the Hill

Victoria Rika-Heke started playing the flute at the age of 10 and learnt from performer Paul Curtis during her years in Singleton. Once finishing high school she attended The Australian Institute Of Music in Sydney, under the tutelage of Danielle Eden and achieved a Advanced Diploma in Flute Performance.

After dabbling in instrument repairs for a few years when she first moved to the Northern Beaches, Victoria finished her diploma and got a full time job at Flute Fidelity (now Flutes & Flutists) and Musicorp / Billy Hydes. Through them she was trained by Australasia’s best flute technician Angus McEwan (Flutes & Flutists) and spent time learning and perfecting the craft of clarinet and saxophone repairs from Andy Berrington and his team at Blow Woodwind & Brass in Queensland. She later learnt brass repairs and now handles anything from a piccolo to a tuba! Victoria repairs everything brass and woodwind, student and professional.

Repairs on the Hill is now based in Kariong on the NSW Central Coast and Victoria will be at our Final Concert and trade display to answer questions you may have regarding flute servicing!
