Ward Johnston is a musician and educator originally from Colorado Springs Colorado. He attended Berklee School of Music and Denver University for Jazz Guitar Performance and has a Masters in Music Education From Northern Arizona University. He loves working with all ages and is focused on students developing a passion for music. In the past 5 years, "Mr. J" taught general music and focused on composing and arranging for young voices. He is VERY excited about working with middle and high school students once again and is FULL of ideas for challenging more advanced players and singers. 

"If nothing else, I want music students to leave school with a deep passion for the power of music and the ability it has to effect emotion. My goal is to develop life long music enthusiasts who use music to help them though life!"



Get ready for a year of music, movement, and FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
