When not pursuing performance, Justin Morrison loves to teach and share music with others. Justin has over seven years experience in teaching Voice, Piano, Trombone, Guitar, Stringed Instruments, Drums, Acting, Music Theory, and even Taekwondo to students of all ages! He teaches and performs in all musical styles, including, but not limited to, Jazz, Musical Theater, Classical, Rock, Pop, and Folk. Justin greatly enjoys playing, discovering, and even composing music with his students who continually teach him in return. Justin Morrison lives and performs by two quotes that he loves to share with his students: "Make peace with perfection," as nothing ever will be completely perfect and because music is a journey, not an end, and, "Practice makes habit," as it is constantly important to pursue musical passion in practice as well as in performance.
