"Passionate and dedicated. These are the qualities that I value the highest, and no one embodies them more than my band director and teacher, Mr. Burdick-Rutz. From giving students opportunities to expand their musicianship skills to leading our marching band down the streets of London, he has spent countless hours making sure his students achieve their dreams. I am extremely grateful to have worked with him for the past four years. His guidance and leadership have helped make me who I am today."
