...You produce an instrument that transcends making flutes - your instruments reach into the very soul, and that is truly something extremely few can claim and, sadly, even fewer strive for.
Thank you…in so many ways!
At a recent benefit performance...I was approached by a young girl and her father. She was recovering from a vicious attack that had placed her in a wheelchair - hopefully, with the Lord’s blessing, not for life. The assault left her partially paralyzed and it was all for her iPhone. A long story short, I felt compelled to give her the flute I had rush ordered, the instrument she called, “An angel’s voice...”. Alicia cried when I gave it to her and it was only with my insistence that she finally accepted it. Afterwards, we played together on the stage to an empty auditorium; Bach’s Sonata No. 1 in B minor - I wept because she played so beautifully! We wept and I was humbled. She continues her education and journey at Juilliard this coming fall.
Chances are you don’t remember me, but I’ve been ordering my flutes from you for quite some time now. They are, without hesitation, the best flutes I have ever had the pleasure performing with. The tone and resonance is nothing less than mesmerizing for both myself and, with sincere humility, my audience. The question always comes up, afterwards, as to where I had these flutes custom made. I always laugh at this and say I ordered them without specification from, in my opinion, the best craftsmen whose instruments I have ever had the honor of playing: Serenity Flutes.
The bamboo flute you made me with the B and butterfly symbol arrived today and I gotta say it's so awesome! Never thought I could get that much quality and beauty for the price. Thank you so much Linda and everyone! I'll certainly order more :)
I was just wondering, should I send you a mail to see how the progress of the bamboo flute walking stick, camera pod, weapon thingie was going. Then my doorbell went, and I was very thrilled to have received it just now — today! I am very happy at the extra design you put on as requested — very warm, thank you. And your tiger design is great, I was immediately attached and sensed your kindness from your art, thank you very much.
I just received the walking stick flute, and it truly is amazing. I will definitely recommend Serenity to anyone who is looking to try a new musical instrument, or wants a customized walking stick/cane. Thank you very much.
Linda, I cannot thank you enough! My cane, with the Kokopelli arrived today and I love it (along with my wife).
I have cancer, and some days I am a little shaky when I walk and other days I am fine. On the shaky days the cane will come with me.
Thank you again!
The cane arrived yesterday and it is absolutely beautiful. Luckily Sue has not needed it, but she is enjoying showing it to everyone. It has helped to make a difficult situation (her necessity of a cane was precipitated by a diagnosis of MS) a little more bearable. The need for a cane can be demoralizing, especially for someone as young as Sue, but this cane has made her proud because it represents so much of what makes her special....I know you'll be getting recommendations from us when people see Sue walking with such a work of art.
The walking stick flute has journeyed with me on 20 sections of the Long Path this summer, which passes through the Shawangunks, Catskills, Schoharie Valley, and and Helderbergs…rough, rough trails with roots and rocks and boulders and sheer rock ledges where you have to toss the stick in the air ahead of you to scramble to the top. It is holding up great, and duly scratched up all over to proudly show where it has been! It makes my hiking so much easier, with extra thrust going up, and balance and stability while descending.
Thanks so much,
I have purchased two flutes (one G and one D) from your booth at Hampton Beach Seafood Festivals, a cane flute for a friend last November, and a walking stick flute in June. I love all your flutes!
Thanks so much,
