SEAN BURKE, instructor at In Tune, is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University. Sean earned his degree in Music Composition and Education in the spring of 2013. His time at CMU has afforded him opportunities to study with members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as well as some of the most prolific composers in the area. His passion for teaching began with his first jobs teaching marching band at his high school and his experience as teaching assistant to three of CMU’s professors. With a focus on the theoretical study of music, Sean was asked to help write and deliver curriculum for two courses at the university.
A student of French Horn and a singer since age ten, Sean has performed with such orchestras and ensembles as the Dayton Philharmonic, Cincinnati Symphony, Honolulu Symphony, the National Honor Choir of Men and Boys, the Cincinnati Boychoir, and in tandem with the Vienna Boy Choir. His goals are to excite and energize young students in whatever their musical interests may be, and his approach is taken from his study of Dalcroze Eurhythmics at CMU. As a teacher of voice, piano, brass, woodwind, theory and early childhood classes, In Tune With the Arts Studios has had the pleasure adding Sean to their lineup of incredible teachers.
Sean will be running the Middle School Small Group Ensemble for the camp
