Dr. Spranza is one of the best piano teachers in the Bay Area. My two daughters take weekly lessons with her. She encourages them and empowers them to do their best. She teaches them both theory and practicals. They have participated in an informal recital and are now registered to take part in the MTAC Certificate of Merit program.

As parents, we see a big improvement in our daughters' piano playing skills. They even practice on their own, without us telling them to. All thanks to Dr. Spranza.

My teaching starts with a good foundation for sound and technique and expands to teach music that is fin and inspiring to each individual student. If the student would like to learn to play jazz, I have a method which will shaves off years of hard work and frustration. All my teaching is geared towards giving the student good basics along with a practical application to today's music scene.

About Rick
I’ve always loved teaching from a young age; finding new ways to break down complex ideas and techniques and making it fun and easy is something that gives me a lot of satisfaction. If you want to play your favorite songs on saxophone, I can save you years of frustration and slow progress.

At the bottom of this page, I have a YouTube video of 3 of my sax students' incredibly fast progress. None of them had ever played saxophone, You can do that too! It’s easy and fun. No boring scales, exercises and dumb tunes. Just a simple, easy way to becoming a great sounding sax player in 1/10th the time. This method has worked for over 1000 students and works 100% of the time if you commit to practice.

I guarantee if you commit to practicing 30 minutes 5 days a week for 4 months and you don't see the success in the video I will give you ALL
of your money back. I have 3 Grammy nominations but the proof of what i can do for you is in this video. Search this title on Youtube:
"Demo of My Sax Students Improvising Progress- 5th lesson to 16th lesson" or just click the video at the bottom of this page.

I'm a senior citizen without a shred of innate musical talent. LOL The idea of being able to improvise the blues on a saxophone was a wild and unattainable fantasy….until I met Rick. I had already checked out lots of other jazz saxophone teachers online so I knew within the first few lessons that Rick​ was unique. He was able to simplify my problems and help me make great progress right away. With enthusiasm, this celebrated musician took me through all the baby steps - first to get a respectable sound, and then through his ingenious system of improvisation. I'm moving at what I would say is warp speed in learning to improvise, already reaching levels of soloing that were only in my dreams. But the real bonus on top of Rick's fantastic teaching method and system is Rick the man, and the relationship this star musician forms with a student. His humility amazes me at every lesson. Knowing how valuable his time must be, the fact that he encourages me to send recordings between lessons, and sends feedback on each one, is testament to how much he truly cares about a student's progress. It's a gift he generously gives. He is also a genius at how much criticism and how much encouragement a particular student needs. Could there possibly be a better teacher than Rick Rossi? I don't think so.

I have been playing flute professionally for over six years. My first performance was a production of "Chicago," and it opened up opportunities to play multiple woodwinds in all kinds of contexts.
I am excited to share my passion for this beautiful instrument!

About Michael
I am a woodwind specialist with a degree in saxophone performance from the University of Arizona. I have been performing and competing since the fifth grade. Since arriving in Tucson in 2010, I have performed in dozens of groups playing many various musical styles including classical, jazz, musical theater, rock, funk and avant garde. Music has provided me with the opportunity to travel all over the world, from London to China and Mexico to Peru.
I opened my private lesson studio in 2012. Since then, I have cultivated a deep passion for creating personalized lessons for motivated students. My students have included beginners as young as eight years old to advanced players well into their retirement.
I'm looking forward to sharing my passion with you!

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.

At age 12, I wanted to play piccolo in a marching band. though I was soon to be inspired by the amazing young musicians of the Seattle Youth Symphony and camp Orchestras under Maestro Vilem Sokol. Then thrilled to join them after having the good fortune of training with the then Seattle Symphony flute/piccolo players- Sidney and Adele Zeitlin, I began as a classical flute and voice major at WWSU in Bellingham.
My growing attraction to theater, then jazz, led me to Seattle UW San Francisco S U drama departments, while studying and playing every improvisational style of music from Brazilian to free form and pop/rock with many artists such as Paul Horn, Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Chuck Sher (Sher Music publisher), touring with renowned bebop vocalist, Jon Hendricks from the west coast to NYC,

Since then, I have performed voice, flute, and picollo in my own and others' numerous classical, jazz, pop, and theater ensembles, for over 45 years, teaching flute and voice since age 17 at

About Abby
Due to my maternal grandfather's work as a Chicago vaudeville orchestra leader, from early childhood, the performing arts have been in my blood. Starting to study classical flute at age 12, then playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and taking professional jazz/classical flute workshops/master classes, I've been teaching and playing all styles of music professionally since my 20's.

Vocal study began at age 15 with some great artists/educators in SF, Seattle, and Europe, including Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Adrian West from NYC Broadway, David Tigner- SF Opera, Davida Kagan-Seattle Opera, and Roland Wyatt-
Manhattan Transfer coach /NY Academy of Dramatic Arts. Through many teaching years, I've developed a very successful, uniquely simple 8 part method to help cross cultural individuals and groups sing optimally from thei
r hearts. For all levels from beginners to professional. the necessary basic vocal techniques can be taught effectively in 4 to 8 lessons, though the process of becoming a successful artist continues during one's lifetime.

With a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, and over 50 years directing, acting, and musical experience, including 15 years working successfully as an ESL educator, my experience has allowed me to help any student achieve their personal and/or professional goals.

Abby van Spronsen is an excellent teacher, who has helped me develop my voice and musical style before and during my Conservatory studies. She really takes time for her students and because of her musical background she knows about many different styles, from jazz to pop to musical and even classical music. She knows how to use this knowledge well in her classes and loves to teach, which makes her a very inspiring voice teacher. I have learned a lot during the time that I took classes from Abby.

I have a very complete formal classical music education background. I have been learning piano when I was 5, and I have been learning flute when I was 9. I was educated in music school during middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate school (New York University). I also took many classes, which are related to woodwind teaching in college. I've started my teaching career since 2011, I am good at providing different teaching methods for different students. It would be really fun to work with me, you will definitely like playing flute and piano.

I worked in an orphanage when I was a sophomore. I worked as a general music tutor, some of them were kids who needed special cares, and I did a successful work there. I taught them how to play with music.

And I have organized four solo flute conc
erts and other different kinds of chamber and orchestra concerts. You will definitely learn more than you thought form me!!

I have been a flautist for 18 years, and a professional performer for 5 years. I was taught under Dr. Ellen Kaner, head of the Texas Flute Society and chair of the famous Texas Flute Festival. She instilled in me a teaching style that proves to steadily better students while keeping them interest. I believe great playing is built on correct technique and a passion for growth. I teach music theory and harmony through fun activities like flute duets. I enjoy working on pieces by the composers or the styles that the student is interested in!

About Hunter
I am currently a senior at the University of Texas in Arlington where I am majoring in vocal performance and music education. I am an accomplished vocalist and flautist with such awards as Baritone in The Texas All-State Choir, Outstanding Flute Soloist at the Flute Festival, Best Vocalist of the Day at the State Vocal Solo Competition, and All-Area band. I was taught flute under Dr. Ellen Kaner, guitar under Erick Kahn, and vocals under Myron Ice (vocal coach of Mitch and Kirstie of Pentatonix). I also have more than 8 years of piano and guitar experience as an active performer. My fiancée, Savannah Low (former American Idol top 24), and I run a professional social occasion performance business called Hunter&Savannah. I currently am the lead vocalist of the hard rock band Lightfall. I have also written and performed lead vocals on many a
lbums in different genres such as Vita Versus' 'Nomads' LP, Lightfall's 'Uncharted' EP, and various original songs and covers recorded for Hunter&Savannah. I have opened for such acts as Daughtry, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hawthorne Heights, and Tonight Alive. I believe in creating better musicians AND people out of my students. I love teaching people of all ages and walks of life!

Flute is fancy and fun!

About Krystle
Krystle is a multi-instrumentalist who's been playing for almost 20 years. She made a living as a professional musician in her early 20s and has since found her calling in music education.

After volunteering for Girls Rock Charlotte (a nonprofit that amplifies confidence in all girls through the power of music) in 2014, Krystle discovered she enjoyed teaching and was good at it. Passionate about music education and clear in her communication, parents started asking her to teach their children in private instruction. She is now the Music Director for Girls Rock Charlotte and has since founded Lady Rockstars. It's a six week group class where women learn to play guitar and bass, form a band, and then have a concert at the end. At this point she's taught over 20 group classes and many more to come. Largely due to the nature of group class
es, She's taught well over 100 people and loves teaching and connecting people through music. Due to the success of her Lady Rockstars program, she has been able to open her own brick and mortar location in Indian Trail and is ready to take on more students.

· Bass Guitar ·
Krystle provides clear, well-planned, easy to follow instruction on the bass guitar. She excels at working with students on songs and genres they enjoy and provides arrangements that allow early success and encouragement for the learner. She is adept at assessing a student’s strengths and deficiencies and can zero in on exercises and songs that provide both skill development and the satisfaction of mastering a challenge. Her extensive teaching experience enables her to customize her instruction for any age or skill level. As an adult learner, I appreciate that Krystle’s feedback is direct, on target and encouraging. She sincerely wants her students to do well and to feel confident and accomplished. While teaching, she holds back on flashing her own considerable prowess as a bassist to avoid discouraging comparisons for beginners. More advanced students, however, find her performances and jams aspirational examples of skills attained through practice, performance and dedicated musicianship. Krystle’s personal style is warm and informal, but her lessons are thoughtful and efficient so that the student makes rapid incremental progress on learning the bass guitar.

I offer 45-minute and 60-minute private flute lessons from my home in Cross Junction, VA. I've taught private flute lessons for the last 10 years and have worked with students of all ages--8 to 73! My students have gone on to win local and state-wide competitions and have been accepted to collegiate music programs.

Music lessons teach much more than music. In addition to music knowledge, I hope my students walk away from flute lessons with a sense of self-confidence, an inquisitive mind, and a joy for learning. My students and I work together to create fun and attainable goals while learning the importance of responsibility, punctuality, and self-motivation. Music lessons should be a safe and fun space for students to stretch their boundaries and be creative.

Music lessons aren't just for kids! Some of my most memorable students were adults. Don't be afraid to try something new!

About Katelyn
Hello! I am thrilled to welcome you to Kaiser Flute Studios. Private music lessons are a lot of fun and I can't wait for us to get to know each other!

There are a few things you can expect of me as your music teacher. You can always expect me to respect you and your time. Respect is very important to me. I ask that you also respect me, my time, and my home.

You can expect me to come prepared for your lessons and to be attentive during your lessons. Your lesson time is our time to work together and I will never give you less than 100% of my focus. When we are in the studio, my attention is yours.

You can expect me to be non-judgmental and open-minded and to always listen to your questions and concerns. I want my studio to be a safe place for your to express. You can talk to me about anything, even if it doesn't relate to the flute. Y
our thoughts, feelings, and concerns are important to me..

From you, I only expect that you will come to your lessons prepared every week and ready to learn. I ask that you communicate with me freely. I want to know what is going on in your life outside of music lessons. Please never be afraid to ask a question or make mistakes. My studio is a non-judgmental place!

When my son Charles approached me asking to take flute lessons I was skeptical. Our family is not musical and I had no idea where to begin the search for a flute teacher! Fortunately, Katelyn was teaching a friend of Charlie at the time and allowed us to come in and observe the lesson before we jumped in to flute lessons. Her rapport with the students and the bond she works to build with them is amazing. Charlie learned so much more than the flute during his time with Katelyn--she encouraged his creativity in all aspects of his life and helped him build self-confidence during hard times. Charlie is no longer playing the flute but the things he learned with Katelyn continue to help him in his daily life.

Katelyn taught flute to my daughter Elizabeth through all of high school. She began in ninth grade and Katelyn helped her excel in her band program, at solo and ensemble festival, in all-state band and orchestra, and eventually in college auditions. Elizabeth is now a sophomore at Ohio State University where she majors in music education and we don't believe she could have done it without the gentle encouragement and support of Katelyn during her high school years! Music lessons are a great investment in your child's future and we would recommend them to anyone!

Dear Student,

I am so excited you want to take music lessons! If you love music, we'll have a lot of fun learning together. My best memories are from playing with friends in band and orchestra. Playing the flute took me to college and to visit Europe, even to meet my best friend and my husband! I love to listen to and teach all kinds of music and can't wait to hear what your favorites are. I studied to be a classical flutist so I play a beautiful silver flute in the orchestra but my husband and I also love popular music.

Having Julie for a flute teacher greatly improved my daughter's proficiency and love for music. Julie was very professional and thorough in her lessons. Most importantly, my daughter was inspired to practice and improve. After taking lessons with Julie, my daughter improved to the level that she began to be hired to perform for Weddings, Church Masses, and Catholic School Masses.

At the National Flute Workshop, Julie helped me to better myself not only as a flute player, but as a whole musician. I'm her history class I learned about different tuning systems, and then she helped me turn that knowledge into practical application on the flute. Julie's teaching helped me play more confidently.

My lessons are designed for you to explore music in unique ways. We will learn about technique, sound production and different styles of music.

About Maria
I am a flute performer, piano teacher and student of classical Indian music specifically in Dilruba. I graduated from my basic degree in flute performance at the Music Conservatory of Valencia, Venezuela. Recently, I am Music Business major at Florida International University and a student in Dilruba performance at the Raj Academy online program.

I am teaching a new method of piano learning that is most focused in which the children adopt a flexible attitude towards learning, create the habit of making connections, such as the ones between music and math, and apply the practice habits and memorization techniques from their piano study to other areas of their lives.

I have taught in music schools in Venezuela. I was a flute teacher and also a musical kindergarten teacher. I have participated in orchestras and music groups in Venezue
la and the US such as Youth Orchestra of Valencia, National Flute Orchestra of Venezuela, Chamber Music Orchestra of Universidad Arturo Michelena, FIU Symphony Orchestra, FIU Marching Band.

I am currently teaching as a volunteer in Mind & Melody, Inc. A non-profit organization that focused on bringing musical experience to participants with Alzheimers and dementia. The sessions are for one hour and they learn basic concepts of music and also explore different instruments through the demonstrations.

My goal is to teach music in a fun way and not only training the ear and the skills but also developing the mind and mindfulness.
