Who We Are
Schmitt Music has been a trusted partner to musicians in the Upper Midwest since 1896. Located in Bloomington, MN, The Flute Gallery has been connecting our community with the world’s finest flutes since its launch in 2015.
We strive to provide all players with the resources they need to perfect their sound. As professional flutists, educators, and technicians, we understand selecting an instrument is a very personal decision that takes careful consideration. Our specialists are here to make finding your flute an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Your air, your voice, your journey. With our expertise in identifying combinations of materials and customizable options, we can help you shape your sound.
In addition to the manufacturer’s warranty, we also provide our own guarantee for each instrument. When you purchase from The Flute Gallery, your confidence rests not only on the promise of your particular flute maker, but also on our ironclad guarantee – proven and backed by 125 years of customer care. In addition, our flute specialists are deeply committed to working with you to assure 100% satisfaction with your flute and our company. We pride ourselves on being able to answer all of your questions about flutes, repairs, maintenance, etc. – contact us with your question; we’ll always do our best to answer it, and we haven’t been stumped yet!
Pictures and lists of product specs help in choosing an instrument, but selecting a flute is a personal experience that requires time with the instruments. We make it easy to play flutes before you make a decision, offering in-store and out-of-store trials. We will ship up to two flutes and three headjoints to your home so you can compare to your current instrument, bring them to a lesson, and truly get to know each instrument.
The Flute Gallery carries fine instruments for the discerning player. Professionals, dedicated amateurs, educators and students will all be delighted to select from our wide spectrum of handmade, professional-level and intermediate flutes, piccolos, harmony flutes and headjoints.
