About Katie

Flute/Double Reed Specialist
Windsmith Music 

After attending Red Wing school for instrument repair in 1995-96, Katie spent time in Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz California before opening the first iteration of Windsmith Music in San Diego in 1999. Here she became the go-to person for student and professional woodwind musicians throughout the county and continued her education with Dale Straubinger.

In 2005 she started her family, moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and stepped back to be a stay-at-home mom. For 9 years she was able to work from home while raising her daughter.  The final move to Corvallis Oregon in 2015 was the impetus for Windsmith Music 3.0, a store front in Philomath, where she did repair and oversaw the store. 

In December 2021, Katie sold the store so she could focus her time on her first love, the repair of flutes and double reeds. Katie is available for fine flute and double reed work. You can find her ready to help you find solutions to issues you may be having whether mechanical or physical in nature.

To set up an appointment, call Katie at  541-760-8865 

Katie's expertise and professionalism can't be matched. Whether it's routine maintenance or urgent adjustment/repair, I know my Burkart & Muramatsu flutes & picc are in the best of hands. Thank you Windsmith Music!

Katie Cooper is an amazing instrument repair specialist. I recently had her clean, oil and adjust my flute. She always asks if I have specific concerns about my flute and goes through the entire range of the flute, balances the action of all the keys, and does a thorough cleaning job on the flute. It is a joy to have my flute come back to me looking and playing like new. Katie is a repair technician who takes the time to go through each instrument that crosses her repair bench as if it were her own. She is a perfectionist in her work and her clients reap the benefits with open, clear sounds and key action that is meticulously balanced in every register. I would not take my flute to anyone else.
