About Matt Burk Music Studio
Matt and Jessica Burk’s passion for music began at young ages; they have both studied it since childhood. They had very different musical experiences and backgrounds as children and young adults, and they have identified some real benefits in their different approaches. Both Matt and Jessica always knew music would be a big part of their lives – whether for personal enjoyment, teaching/encouraging others, serving in their church, etc.
In 2006, their passion for music and Matt’s entrepreneurial spirit prompted them to start what was previously Matt Burk Piano Studio in their home. Matt’s schedule quickly filled up, and as he saw students growing, encouraged and enthusiastic about music, he knew that he wanted to bring this excitement about music and this positive, fun experience to more students, and to expand the instruments offered.
This led Matt and Jessica to rent a commercial space in East Allen in 2007 and to add three additional instructors to teach guitar, bass, and drums. Within a year in this new space, the studio was bursting at the seams – they had brought in a second piano instructor and were juggling lessons and studio space to fit in all the appointments. After exactly one year in that location, they moved into a new, bigger suite in the same complex, doubling their square footage. They hired a voice instructor and a third piano instructor. In July of 2011, they completed their studio with another instructor – for voice, songwriting and audio production.
As the studio has continued to grow and as they have continued to strive to provide the very best music instruction, performance opportunities, and service to students, it became necessary for Matt to step out of his teaching role, and to focus his time and energies on helping Jessica with the administrative side of the studio operations, as well as on coaching and encouraging the Studio’s instructors. So in March of 2012, they brought in another exceptional piano instructor to assume Matt’s teaching role.
Now with 8 instructors and approximately 300 students in the studio for private lessons every week, the Studio continues to grow. Matt and Jessica look forward to reaching even more students with the positive, creative and inspiring approach their studio takes toward music lessons as they are preparing to open their second location in Frisco!
Matt and Jessica’s desire was to create a music studio that is a fun, inspiring, and encouraging place for students to learn, create and perform. They realize that students take lessons for many different reasons – some students plan to be concert or professional musicians, others want a creative outlet or personal enrichment, some want to build positive self-esteem or to play in a band.
Because they know that students study music for any variety of reasons, the goal of all of the instructors at Matt Burk Music Studio is to meet each student where they are and help them with their specific musical goals, while incorporating their unique musical interests, in a creative, inspiring and encouraging atmosphere.
Matt and Jessica have found such fulfillment in bringing quality music instruction in a fun, supportive environment for students in the Allen, Frisco, Fairview, McKinney, Plano, and North Dallas area. They would love to have you as a part of their growing studio! If you would like to discuss any questions you have about lessons with Matt Burk Music Studio, please call or email us today.
