Celine Burke is the K-12 music teacher for Imbler School District. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree with a focus in percussion performance and a minor in psychology from Eastern Oregon University. She was first introduced to African drumming in an EOU class led by John McKinnon and Luke McKern in 2007, and she has been hooked ever since.
