Christopher Francis (CF) Burke is a musician, vocalist, songwriter and engineer/producer with over 15 years of professional experience. A multi-instrumentalist, he plays piano/organ, guitar, bass, accordion, tuba, harmonica, and bagpipes. Chris also teaches piano and guitar lessons privately in Westchester County NY, and is an experienced piano accompanist available for auditions and performances. Chris is available for session work either in-person or remotely via his home studio.
After years of working (happily) on other people's music in the NY area, CF Burke decided to start releasing some of his own. His first effort as a solo artist, the songs on this release tend to split between acoustic pop and loud electronic rock. The EP is entirely performed, recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris. A follow-up is currently in the works.
Also available on iTunes, Google Music, Amazon, Spotify and other retailers.
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.contact
