    It is such a moral booster to work with Burak. He did an amazing job with the score that I sent to him. He kept me posted and started the job and completed it in one day. This is impressive. I love working with professionals like Burak. His tone is so beautiful and he made my song come alive as he played all the parts. I am looking forward to doing more work with Burak. Yes, he is a highly skilled flute player.
