How we do it

We offer 30 min, 45 min, 60 min lessons on all of our instruments. We teach our students to read notation, understand music theory, play fun music and proper steps to express their artistry. To ensure that every student is fulfilling their personal goals, we have created customizable Milestones Programs that your teacher will create with you and specify your target dates for completing the hurdles that come along with your objectives to become a top notch musician.

Burdett Rice is an exceptional teacher and musician. I am an intermediate adult piano student and worked with Burdett for 4 years. He is a talented musician and a patient teacher. I loved that he taught me technique, theory, and music history all of which combined to make me a more well-rounded musician. I moved out of state or I would still be taking lessons from Burdett.

Nicole B says...

Burdett is the most patient, fun yet knowledgeable piano teacher we have ever had. He is incredibly gifted in all things rhythm and music. On top of it all, he is a wonderful human.

Tracy B says...

Burdett is a great teacher, he relates to the kids and has fun while teaching. Would recommend him to anyone!!
