- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
My name is Joshua Ballard. I’m currently making online music courses from home for a company called Lernsys. I have a B.A. in Music Education with Highest Honors. I've been teaching for 10 years. I've directed, taught, and sang for multiple churches. I worked as an Assistant Choir Director at Tascosa High School for 3 years before I have the job I do now.
I'm looking for private piano and voice students any age. I prefer to teach at my home, but I'm open to coming to you. Please contact me if you’re interested!
My Personal Bio:
My beautiful wife tells me that she loves my passion for people. I live my life striving to make everyone I meet better for having met me. I teach music because caring about the people in the world means communicating effectively with everyone. To do that we need a Universal language, and music fills that role. I believe that in order to make the world a better place we need to be in touch with other people in profound, creative ways. Working as an online teacher has provided me that chance. Through them I can fulfill my philosophy by reaching hundreds or thousands of people across the world.
I consider it a privilege and an honor to work for my students. My experience teaching has proven that this vocation comes with heavy responsibilities, therefore I take my job very seriously. I'm extremely motivated to producing high quality courses. I teach music in a way that's comprehensive, interesting, and rewarding. We can't ignore that Science has proven that the nature of music instills deep-seated, virtuous core values like self-discipline and a high self-esteem. Music will also improve a student's performance in other subjects, especially in mathematics and reading.
Music is a lifelong skill that should be accessible to everyone. My calling is to give my all to make it so. If you feel a calling to become a professional musician, don't feel discouraged from it! In today's world you can find a fulfilling, lifelong career in music. I hope you will entrust me to teaching you music, and I promise, if you do, you will not regret it!
I build online music courses.
