Flute/Double Reed Specialist
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.
