Greg Burkher has been teaching piano lessons in Woodland Hills and The San Fernando Valley for over 25 years. He has a BA in Music Composition and Piano Performance, and a BS in Computer Electronics and High Tech Management.
Originally a Piano Performance major, the economy of the 80’s made him change his major to Computer Electronics. He worked as an engineer for a few years and decided it was not the career for him. “It was to inhuman and I was no longer interested in the technology, so I went back to college and finished the original degree. I know school very well!”
Greg Burkher is extremely good at explaining concepts to people, especially music concepts. Burkher has studied with Don Haas, Charles Gustavson, Thomas La Ratta and Herb Mickman. Greg’s Woodland Hills piano lessons incorporate his own method of explaining musical concepts of theory and musicianship, as well as any preexisting method you may decide upon, specializing in Bastien, Burnam, Thompson, and Faber and Faber, as well as Jazz methods by Debbie Denke and Bill Cunliff.
“I especially like to see how students think about musical concepts and see if I can take their understanding and augment it in a productive way.”
In his Woodland Hills Piano Lessons Greg also teaches concepts such as perfect pitch with various approaches he has perfected over the years. Greg Burkher is also a performer and plays for special occasions. Greg plays all types of music from Jazz to Rock to Classical. Check out the videos!
