Greetings Arts Lovers,
Fall is a time of new beginnings here at CommonTime. New music is being made, new art is being created, new dance steps are taking shape, and new aspects of drama are being expressed. As we embrace this newness, remember that CommonTime is here for you. From our roster of Artists ready to engage with you and your students to our network of arts practitioners and educators, to our bank of resources for Artists and Educators alike, step into Fall with CommonTime!

Joshua Alexander is a composer and sonic artist living in Georgia, USA. He is a classical musician, rap artist, music engineer, and much more. It is Joshua’s belief that composing is a mechanism of creation rather than merely a musical activity, and it is his duty to create art that connects to this truth. He is excited to share these insights with other creative artists, regardless of whether they consider themselves such. Designers, architects, painters, lawyers, mothers, athletes, and so forth, all share an acute understanding of how to intelligently connect their artifacts to create a successful experience; they are all composers! Book a lesson with Joshua and discover your inner composer!
