His teaching process begins with identifying what will be the “hook” that excites the student, and will keep him/her motivated to put in the necessary work to maximize the rewards music can give. If the student is always working on something they find fun, it is much easier to teach the underlying nuts and bolts of music necessary for being a "complete" player. By maintaining a flexible approach to styles, techniques, and methods, he aims to avoid the student “burning out”, and keeping a positive relationship with his/her instrument.

"Chris Burke is a fantastically personable and talented pianist who is able to tailor lessons to the specific interests of any child. My son has studied with Chris for the past 4 years and has always had his personal style accounted for while still gaining a basic working knowledge of key signatures and chord progressions. I would definitely recommend him for any child who is interested in pursuing piano lessons with a warmly caring and talented teacher!"
