Dear Mr. Burd,
Thank you so much for the musical education that you provide for my granddaughter, Natalie Ferne. Your knowledge and abilities are superb, your patients with Natalie is wonderful. Natalie has learned so much in the 8 or 9 months you have been her teacher. My wife and I are very happy we found you as Natalie's mom and dad are extremely pleased. Of course Natalie thinks you are the greatest teacher in the world. The more she learns, the more she practices. She plays her songs now on her own without being asked too. She loves it, she enjoys showing off to her friends. All thanks to you and your wonderful abilities.

Once again, thank you Paul!

Best Regards,
George & Sachiko
