About John Branham
Get to know John Branham
My goal is to teach active and engaging lessons that center on what my students want to learn, while providing the best instruction that my skills and abilities can give. My philosophy is that students will learn what they love. I strive to train my students to be independent and thoughtful musicians, capable of exploring the limitless expanse of sound that music has to offer. Making music fun is not merely good enough for me. Making music meaningful to my students is what drives me to find the best assignments and the most relevant and engaging ways of explaining difficult concepts while showing them the power that this art form truly has to communicate to us as human beings.
When I am not playing or composing music I use my free time to draw, paint, or even write short stories. I am an avid art lover and peruse it almost as passionately as I study music. I enjoy talking with people and meeting new friends. I especially love to participate in group projects that involve creating a story or game idea. I am also a bookworm, and finish the day with a good novel and a steaming mug of tea.
