The Perfect Fit

Once again the students here at Matt Burk Music Studio are in the very early stages of picking the pieces that they'll be performing at our semi-annual showcase and recital.  It is always a tricky thing, choosing the right song for a performance.  Students want to keep a few things in mind when picking their song! Does the piece challenge but not outright frustrate? That is a good sign. We want something that keeps us interested but not so difficult that it discourages practice! For singers, always know the necessary key for your song. Sometime the backing track is in a key that may prove difficult and must be adjusted! Guitar players; does the song require a capo? If so, be sure that you have one handy. I keep one in my acoustic case at all times. I suggest also having a tuner packed as well to be in tune and ready when it is time to perform.  Piano students: is your piece a solo or duet?  These are all small but helpful suggestions for choosing the right piece. Keep in mind that we want you to have fun and perform something that inspires YOU! That is the perfect fit! I am also very excited about the recital/showcase as it will be the first one for our teachers at the new location in Frisco! I am very excited to see what they have in store for us.

If you are interested in learning an instrument, please stop by either our Allen or Frisco, Texas locations or sign up through our website! We offer private music lessons for piano, guitar, drums, bass, voice, and songwriting. Matt Burk Music Studio: Learn, Create, Perform!

Spring Recitals & House of Blues Showcase

Recitals are a valuable tool to for any music student. Whether traditional, or more edgy, Matt Burk Music Studio offers multiple performance opportunities throughout the year. We just had our Spring Recitals at the McKinney Performing Arts Center and Showcase at House of Blues Dallas.

{BOOKED} Matt Burk Music Studio Spring Recital and Showcase!

We are excited to announce that we have confirmed the dates for our upcoming spring recital and showcase! Students of Matt Burk Music Studio will get to choose whether they perform at:
1) McKinney Performing Arts Center in a traditional "recital" on Sunday, May 1st, or
2) House of Blues in a less-traditional "showcase" on Sunday, May 15th.

At both venues, all the instruments we teach will be represented - piano, drums, bass, guitar and voice. Also at both venues, performances will begin in the afternoons (around 1:30 pm or later). Exact performance times will be finalized as we get a firm headcount of the students performing at each venue.

Students will receive an email soon with all the details regarding each performance, as well as an opportunity to register online to perform in one of these exciting events!
