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.
In 1986 Albert Cooper, a highly revered flute maker and designer, was invited to attend an Australian Flute convention. Quizzed by Mr Lehner as to how to recruit world class flute makers and develop Australian flute making, Mr Cooper suggested approaching Mark O'Connor, a young English flute maker living and making in Boston USA.
In 1987, Mark O'Connor arrived at John Lehner flutes and quickly made a mark, taking over management of the company in 1990.
In 1995 Mark bought the company and establish Worldwind Musical instruments Pty. Ltd to manage the import of quality flutes and woodwind, and The Woodwind Group Pty. Ltd. Incorporating Flute Tree and Saxem Accessories.
Built around uncompromising attention to detail in the repair and maintenance of woodwind instruments, the business grew and became a model many have tried to emulate.
Selling was never a priority for Mark but it was inevitable that as the world's leading makers looked for reliable world class support for their instruments and clients, so he was asked to represent those companies in Australia.
The Woodwind Group and its predecessor John Lehner Flutes Australia, is responsible for the introduction of practically all quality brands currently available in Australia, but the Woodwind Group never stands still, and constantly strives for perfection. Research, technical assessment and or course playing, inform our company as we continue to lead the way in introducing the finest of instruments and repair techniques, available at any point in time.
