About us

Our story

Michael Geoghegan was part of the Boston Handmade Flute industry. He started repairing Flutes in 1971 and by 1975 he had raised the quality of his work to a level that attracted the interest of Edward V. Powell, son of Verne Powell. Edward Powell was an accomplished flutist and teacher. Ed Powell directed Michael to the Powell Flute Company where Michael worked as a finisher for 5 years. At that point, Michael decided to start his own flute making operation producing the Phoenix Flute and the Geoghegan Flute from 1980 to 1984. After years of research and experimentation, the firstHeadjoint was unveiled in 2009. Today, Geoghegan Headjoints are being played by musicians and enjoyed by audiences all around the world. We like to think that Theobold Boehm and Albert Cooper would both be very pleased.
