We opened in 1968 in San Jose and then had two stores in Saratoga and Santa Cruz for almost 30 years, before moving to Pacific Grove and Monterey.
WE ARE A REAL BRICK AND MORTAR STORE!
Our owner is a master craftsman, soloist, conductor and teacher with students playing worldwide.
Our goals have always been to provide the finest in instruments, mouthpieces, reeds, teaching, repairs and accessories.
Our HEISIG instruments are very exciting and remarkably affordable.
People say great things about them.
"Oh man, these are the most enchanting fluid instruments I've played!" -- Prince Lasha, jazz artist
"That's the most beautiful tenor I've ever heard." -- John Anderson, Conductor, Ensemble Monterey
"I've gotten more compliments on my HEISIG than any other horn I've played." -- Bobbie Webb, California Blues Festival
THE PROOF IS --COME TRY THEM YOURSELF!!
We have always been performance oriented and have many fine performance groups associated with our stores.
We have always been teaching oriented. In addition to Kurt Heisig teaching, we have had Carl Leach ex Co-lead trumpet with Stan Kenton and leading protege of Claude Gordon. We have had Joan Butterfield of the Dallas Symphony and student of Moyse and Kincaid teaching in our stores.
We have had the great honor of having Claude Gordon the world's foremost brass teacher and Stephen Adelstein the world's foremost oboe teacher both on our faculty!
Many of our students have gone on to make their own mark in music, such as Tom Politzer with Tower of Power, and Mauro Di Gioia of REED GEEK.
We have several tabs you can open giving our history, INSTRUMENTS, mouthpieces, teaching etc.
Please browse through them at your leisure. Since we have always been a teaching center you will find we periodically update this site with new information.
Students come to study with me from all over the world, but we are very close to Carmel, Marina and the other Monterey area communities.
As this site develops you just may find it a rewarding lesson to browse it!
Enjoy and God Bless,
