Born and raised in Japan, Kanichi Nagahara began his flute-making career as an apprentice with a major Japanese flute manufacturer primarily concentrating on headjoints and research & development. He also studied traditional Japanese metalworking (including engraving, chasing, and inlay), with Mr. Asai, a master silver smith. Nagahara is truly a one-of-a-kind company, making a one-of-a-kind instrument. Having worked with both Japanese and American flute makers, Kanichi Nagahara has created an instrument which draws on the best aspects of both worlds, combining Japanese production ingenuity with traditional Boston craftsmanship. Today, Nagahara is viewed as a top flute maker among the flute community and a worthy pioneer in the development of the modern flute holding several patents improving the flute's design. Hand-made for each customer, professional and recreational flutists over the world chose to play a Nagahara for their reliability and superior craftsmanship.
