Passing Knowledge

“Terry has for a long time been passing his knowledge and wisdom on to others, through his web site and the woodenflute and flutemakers email lists. In the last few months, he’s taken this to a new level with the induction of his first trainee flutemaker, ensuring that his manual, practical and organisational skills are also passed on.”

From Australian flute maker Terry McGee’s résumé.

A wise, healthy philosophy, rarely found among musical instrument makers — I wish more of them were aware of the importance of passing their knowledge to others.
