Burnt Hills Music was started in 1991 by it's
present owner, Rick Werblow. A
Syracuse University ( BA: Music), Rick performed in
venues on the east coast.
In 1988 returning from Georgia, Rick began teaching
a local music chain, seeing 65 students a week on
bass, and harmonica. When that chain folded
in mid - 1991, Rick
"gambled everything" and
Burnt Hills Music.
Today Burnt Hills Music has ten teachers on staff
lesson programs in
Fretted Instruments (guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin),
Brass winds (trumpet, trombone, F. horn, tuba),
Woodwinds (saxophones, clarinets), Piano and

Additionally Burnt Hills Music has grown into more
than just a
teaching academy; it is now a full-line music
store, selling all of the above instruments,
accessories. Full School Band rent-to-own
programs, including school breaks for all local school
districts is available.
