...if it weren’t for the down-to-earth, genuine care, and compassion of Kathryn Prinz, I probably wouldn’t have jumped in with both feet (to learn zither) so quickly.....Who me? Yes, a new chapter in my life; all as a result of the encouragement, faith, and support of Kathryn’s weekly teaching and rehearsals....and now I’m a member of the Long Island Zither Ensemble, playing in concerts, featured in local newspaper articles, and have made CD recordings...who would’ve thought...what a wonderful blessing!


My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Kathryn for 2 years, as well as participating in the Flute Magic! Ensembles . . . I can't say enough good things about her - accomplished musician . . . highest degree of professionalism. . . civic minded. . .encouraging, positive attitude. . . knowledgeable and helpful in anything flute. So lucky to have her in Oyster Bay!


...I was very nervous at my first (zither) lesson, because there was so much to learn, but I soon relaxed. Kathryn's gentle approach helped me gain confidence in my abilities immediately. The Prinz Music Studio is a welcoming space that is very conducive to learning..... Kathryn is very organized and prepared as a teacher... she answers all of my questions and tailors our lessons for my learning style. The time flies when I am with her, and it is always hard for me to leave when my lesson is over!


Kathryn Prinz is a fantastic teacher, who knows how to bring out the best in her students. She has a beautiful soul and gives her students the confidence they need to excel. Thanks to Kathryn, my daughter’s flute playing has improved significantly. I highly recommend her as a teacher.
