Johann Mathews

Johann Mathews received his Master’s degree in Music Composition from Azusa Pacific
University in the Spring of 2021 and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from the
Bangalore Conservatory, India. During his Undergraduate education, Johann’s merit in
academics and music education afforded him the position of adjunct music instructor at the
same college soon after his graduation. After teaching Music Theory, Piano, Music History and
Composition at a undergraduate level for a year and a half, he proceeded for his Master’s in
Music Composition.
Johann began learning the piano at age 11 and has been teaching the instrument for the past 5
years. His passion as a music educator and composer has enabled him to work with several
exceptional musicians, teachers, and composers and his works have been performed on several
occasions in India and the US. A notable performance of an original Choral piece includes the
Gideon’s International Annual Indian Conference in 2019. His most recent performance was his
Senior Graduate Recital in Music Composition at Azusa Pacific University, conducted in May of
2021, where he showcased 45 minutes of original works set for orchestral, choral, small
ensemble groups and short film. Here he best exemplifies musical styles of the worlds of John
Williams, Thomas Newman and John Rutter, through contemporary- classical orchestral,
cinematic and sacred choral works. Johann informs his teaching philosophy by saying that one
of the most effective tools he could employ as a music teacher, is the ability to inspire his
students.
