Charles Burkhart is a retired musicologist, theorist, composer, and pianist. He is a scholar in Schenkerian analysis.

Burkhart was a student of Felix Salzer[1] (it is implied at Queens College, where Burkhart is also listed among faculty).[2] His M.A. thesis for Colorado college, written in 1952,[3] concentrated on the musical culture of Old Order Amish and of Old Colony Mennonites.[4]

Burkhart's compositions include some organ preludes[4] and choruses he has composed and arranged.[5]
