As a volunteer organization, we are dedicated to supporting and encouraging the growth and development of flutists of all ages and levels of ability by providing opportunities for education, performance, social interaction and advancement of pedagogy to our membership and to the San Diego flute and music community at large.
The San Diego Flute Guild was formed in 1987 (with just 6 members) to host the 1988 NFA Flute Convention. Since then, our membership has grown to over 300 student, adult aficionado, and professional flutists.
The San Diego Flute Guild is a wonderful organization, and not just for flutists. We are increasing our outreach to coordinate with other musical / instrumental clubs and associations, as well as flute clubs / associations in the U.S. and abroad. It is our goal to promote the Flute and Music through year-round events and outreach programs.

Kindness, Social Responsibility, Dignity and Respect, Equity and Equality, Accountability, Excellence, and Integrity. These values are to be considered in all courses of action.
