Mr Heisig has been a college brass teacher, but more important he was trained in the Herbert L. Clarke - Claude Gordon System of teaching brasses by both Carl Leach, Claude Gordon's top protege and Dr Claude Gordon himself.
This is the finest system of brass teaching in history.
He is a Certified Claude Gordon Brass Teacher.
In 1985 Dr Gordon started teaching a one year course on correct teaching of brasses in Mr Heisig's old Saratoga store. This course was created by Dr Gordon at the request of Kurt Heisig.
Mr. Heisig assisted in this course five of the eight years it was taught.
Dr Gordon said to Kurt Heisig; "You are more loyal than all the others. You teach just what I say, you don't vary."
Claude was also the top trumpet designer in the world and used Kurt Heisig as his personal trumpet tester.
Mr Heisig has been teaching Trumpet, Cornet, Flugelhorn, Trombone, Bass Trombone, French Horn, Baritone, Euphonium, and Tuba in the Clarke Gordon System since 1975.
Mr Heisig has had many award winning and pro students in the brasses and has one of the premier brass studios on the West Coast.
