It was George who first showed interest in the flute. The brothers borrowed a flute to copy and started flute making at an early age. They worked together for about six years and made both silver and wood piccolos.
Robert Dick has often been referred to as "the Hendrix of the flute" because of his revolutionary musical approach and the ultra-high intensity level of his performances. Listening to him play solo has been likened to the experience of hearing a full orchestra.
A prolific recording artist, Dick is known for his CDs of original music and improvisational collaborations. Dick has also begun to record traditional repertoire.

He feels that the opportunity for in-depth instruction and follow up that a five or ten day class provides is invaluable for students.
He has done six such residencies at the North Carolina School of the Arts. Teaching both basic improvisation and introducing extended flute techniques, he led the class in a concert presentation of his Transdimensional Lending Library. Close to two thousand flutists gave his performance and his music a standing ovation.
He is currently collaborating with Bickford Brannen of Brannen Brothers Flutemakers on the development of the "Robert Dick Glissando Headjoint", which does for the flute what the "whammy bar" does for the electric guitar.
The goal of this bass flute, which Dick plays in his concerts alongside of the unique Brannen, is to be a powerful, rich-toned yet modestly priced instrument. Dick plays contrabass flute, bass flute, flute with "Glissando Headjoint", and flute.
Satoshi Takeishi plays his uique and very beautiful percussion instruments.
