Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Angelina Yuan-Fen Ho, a native of Hsinchu, Taiwan, began playing the flute at ten. In 2010, she received her B.A. in music from UC Berkeley, where she studied with Isabelle Chapuis, Julie McKenzie, and Maria Tamburrino. As an M.M. candidate in Flute Performance at the University of Maryland, she was a student of William Montgomery from 2010 to late 2012. Before she could complete the degree, significant health issues arose that prevented Yuan-Fen from continuing her studies and necessitated a hiatus from playing the flute.

Since Fall 2018, Yuan-Fen has been pursuing her M.M. degree at the San Francisco Conservatory as a student of Timothy Day.

I am excited to share my passion for this beautiful instrument!

Michael is an excellent teacher and he was so patient with my daughter (5th grade). She was way ahead of the other students in her class and he found additional music for her to learn so she wasn't bored.
Suzette
When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him.

"I can't say enough great things about Sue! Under her guidance, it's been a pleasure getting back into playing my flute after a hiatus of over 25 years. Her knowledge of the instrument and expert instruction (as well as her infinite patience!) continue to provide me with the motivation I've needed to overcome some of the challenges I've faced after being away from my instrument for so long. Her teaching style is relaxed and flexible but firm; she knows just when I need to be challenged and just when to back away a bit. She's been a great fit for me, and I encourage other flute players of all levels to giver her a try!"
