To help facilitate appointments and make estimates I am available for pre-appointment video conference consultations. Conferencing can happen via Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facetime, or Signal. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what’s happening and then we can discuss if a video conference could be helpful. I am only accepting instruments for drop-off and pick-up and am limiting my personal contact with each person. Video conferencing is an excellent way to collect information.
Unfortunately due to time constraints I am not able to answer repair questions from people outside of the Bay Area. I receive many interesting inquiries in a day and unfortunately if you are not a local flutist I can’t reply to them. If you are in the area and wish to have your flute worked on please contact me and I will respond within one business day. You might also read my FAQs and find your answers.
I’m located at Pacific and Van Ness Avenues. Please contact me for my address and an appointment time. For online driving directions I recommend Google Maps. There is an error on Mapquest’s directions on how to get to me from the South Bay.
Due to construction in San Francisco there are NO LEFT TURNS from off of Van Ness Avenue. If you are coming to me from the south, please approach via Franklin or Polk Streets.
Metered and unmetered street parking is available. San Francisco has a 2-hour limit on both metered and unmetered parking. Plus there prohibitions on parking during street cleaning times. You can find the street cleaning schedule here. Enter “1800 Pacific Avenue” — a nearby address to me — to find the local sweeping schedule. The schedule will change every few blocks. (Note: This is NOT an easy link to find online and the SF mobile street cleaning apps leave much to be desired.)
