Lillian Burkart is the founder and President of Burkart Flutes and Piccolos in Shirley, Massachusetts. As a flutist, innovator, and entrepreneur, Lillian is passionate in her drive to craft high quality instruments for all aspiring, amateur, and professional flutists. A graduate of the Philadelphia Music Academy, she worked as a professional musician and flute teacher with Settlement Music Schools for four years prior to entering a career in flute making.

She founded the world renowned Burkart Flute company in 1983 and has given presentations on entrepreneurship and career development at the National Flute Association conventions, in music colleges and to business groups.
