Kurt Heisig Music was established in 1968. We have always sold the finest in professional instruments to top players all around the world, including one that went into space on the space shuttle Challenger with Dr Ron McNair, one of Mr Heisig's students.

Our students have always done very well, including taking first in the state on both woodwinds and brass and many have gone on to top professional positions, including Tom Politzer soloist with Tower of Power.

To help our students and community, we have always sold fine instruments. With a good instrument the student learns faster. In recent years many of the big name companies have just stopped making good instruments. To solve the need of students and pros to have good instruments Mr Heisig has brought out a line of quality instruments at very affordable prices.

Come in and try them!! You will be delightfully surprised.

We teach all styles of music. The essential thing is that the student plays musically and acoustically CORRECTLY.

With the brasses we teach the Herbert L Clarke - Claude Gordon System of brass teaching. This is the finest system in the world and both Dr Gordon and his top protege Carl Leach have been on the faculty at Kurt Heisig Music.

Customer Testimonials

I find this to be a gem of the Bay Area. The owner is extremely personable, knowledgeable and is a business I have no problem supporting by patronage.

The best technician I've met to date. I drove all the way down from the East Bay to see him for some custom reeds. As far as Im concerned, I've never played a batch of reeds until meeting Kurt. He'll cut them and work with you on every reed from any vintage in his stock until it each one absolutely SINGS. He has a lifetime worth of knowledge and experience. Get your sound you've always wanted with Kurt!

We are new to the area and needed to get my daughters flute adjusted/ tuned and also my nephews alto sax... knowing little about instruments myself and reading so many bad reviews I made a call to Kurt who came up on a search for teaching with excellent reviews! I brought our flute and sax in and he really is amazing! so much knowledge, even gave teaching advice throughout the process, when he was done with my daughters flute she stated even brand new it didn't play this good! Sax sounds beautiful and the adjustment was in a snap!
Thank you again Kurt~ truly a professional and knowledgeable person. We will be coming here for all our instrument needs and lessons if needed!
