About Andreas Burzik

Burzik's "Practicing in Flow" has helped scores of students, as well as professionals, conductors, teachers and ensembles. In addition to his practice in Bremen, Germany, his is also the psychological coach for the students of the Academy of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and well as an active lecturer and workshop leader. His visit to Boston, sponsored jointly by NEC and A Far Cry, will be his professional debut in the U.S.
