John Morgan


Oral History Information

Interview Date
Job Title
Company Name
Gemeinhardt Flutes

John Morgan was a band instrument sales rep who knew how to talk to school band directors.  After all, he had been a director for years and once he entered the music products industry, it seemed like a perfect fit. He was still a teacher as he recalled, and he was still encouraging students to play a musical instrument. John worked for GC Conn, Selmer, Gemeinhardt flutes, United Musical Instruments (UMI) and King Band instruments during his 30 plus years as a rep. When Gemeinhardt merged to expand its product line beyond flutes, John stayed on with the company, which changed its name to Gem Stone.
