About Us

Virtuosity was founded in fall of 2015 after a need was recognized for a communal meeting place for musicians to exchange ideas, network and learn about instruments new and old. We are continually learning, expanding inventory and becoming an indispensable source for products and information. Whether its a custom horn or a rare collectible, we've helped customers from several continents track down their dream instrument. At Virtuosity, we don't think of ourselves as just another store.

Owner Steve Johnson is deeply rooted in the greater Boston music community. In addition to his Doctoral studies at Boston University, Steve holds Master's & Bachelor's degrees in trumpet from Cincinnati Conservatory. A New England native and freelancer, Steve has always been fascinated with musical instruments. "The thought that we can create beautiful sounds from raw materials such as wood or metal is incredible. The first time I made a sound on my trumpet it blew me away."
Woodwinds Specialist Brett Walberg is a Boston-based Adjunct Professor, bandleader and composer with a focus on community outreach and development. "Creating a space for musicians to play, learn and grow has been a huge focus of mine for years." Brett holds a Master's Degree from the Longy School of Music.
Woodwinds Specialist Zach Olson is a musician and arranger currently pursuing a dual degree in Jazz Composition and Film Scoring. Hailing from San Francisco, CA, Zach has had the opportunity to perform and study on both coasts, influencing him to contribute to surrounding collegiate and musical environments in any way possible.
Digital Content Archduke Sam Gossner is responsible for making sure all the product photos end up in the right place... err, most of the time. Sam has a Bachelor's degree in Professional Music from Berklee College of Music with concentrates including music business and recording. When he's not wrangling pixels and accidentally deleting CSS files, he enjoys retypesetting 1830's trombone manuals and baking cinnamon bread.

Each musician is as important as the next, no matter where they are on their musical journey. We're here to help you along the way.
