Mr. Burton was my band teacher at Washington Intermediate School from 1982-1983, and then at McKinley High School sometime between 1984 through 1986. He always challenged me to new heights and I always excelled. First trumpet All-State band two years in a row. First chair in school band. Always pragmatic. Lots of opinions. Didn't know his father was such an accomplished and influential musician, writer, teacher until today.

Mr. Burton is by far a very gifted teacher. He is inspiring and despite what others may think he really cares for his students. He is different from other teachers, he teaches the feelings of music not the technicalities. I guarantee that you WILL NOT learn this with any other band, nor will they teach it as well as he did. I feel blessed to have been under his direction from 2008 to 2010.

He was one of the most helpful music teachers I had in my life. I never really understood him back then but I understand him now. He put me in the 8th grade band when I was in the 7th grade.

Mr. Burton was a great band director. He knew how to connect to his students and really teach them the fundamentals of music. I wouldn't be in music now if it wasn't for him.

Mr. Burton is the best band teacher you can ever had. He may seem like he is mean on the out side but he makes sure you do you best. I might just have stayed in band if he was still my teacher.
