A genius when it comes to music. Not only did Mr. Yurko teach the value of music, breathing, the arts, but also was a big reason why I adore music. He has seen and played a lot in his age, and only hoped to teach his students about what he learned through the years. Mr. Yurko looked pasts just the notes and saw the music that stems from the heart.
Mr Yurko was by far one of the most inspirational, talented, and motivational men I have ever met. In terms of teaching, he was unparalleled. As a teacher now, I can only hope that I will be so memorable to at least one of my students. I know that Mr. Yurko will be remembered by hundreds, if not all of his students. I can whole heartedly accredit my love and appreciation for music to his musical genius.
Amazing, he inspired me to be a music ed major. If I can become half the teacher he is, I will be rather amazed.
BREATHE...EVERY DOG IN CHERRY HILL...funny funny guy. keeps us laughing and pushes u to become better. we r goin to the Kimmel Center this year bc hes so good. yeah Yurko
Only a few teachers have profound positive influence, and make you not only a better student, but also a better person--Bruce is one of them.
Yurko is so cool! He really makes the band as good as it is. definetly one of my favorite teachers.
Always teaching, always pushing! Awesome conductor and helps develop the band and its members! Also funny, but dont talk and take a BIG BREATH!
Best teacher at the school. He cares about his students' growth. A great teacher and mentor!
the best conductor i've ever had, really knows music inside out
Quite demanding but so worthwhile. He really helps you grow...
He's so kool and he always tells the truth! Too bad he's retiring
He knows his stuff, very happy to be part of his class.
The lack of easiness is what pushes you to become a better musician.
Yurko never ceases to amazing me...the best musician I have ever worked with
man, i love it when he stands on the roof with a microphone and yells at us.
He's one of the most professional teachers in the school.
Yurko is the best. How did East luck out on getting a music teacher like him
