Timothy Ballan, Composer, Piano

  Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Timothy Ballan is a writer, composer, pianist, and music teacher who has been active in his fields since the age of seventeen. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a Certificate of Piano Pedagogy from Valley City State University, and national certification in piano pedagogy from the Music Teachers National Association.

As a writer, Timothy mostly writes plotless stories, atmospheric vignettes, poems, and non-pretentious philosophy. As a composer, Timothy mostly writes accessible art music both for film and concert. In his compositions, Timothy is mostly influenced by Western and non-Western folk music, melodic cinematic music, and minimalism.  The scale of his nearly one hundred works ranges from solo to symphonic.

As a performer, Timothy most often performs improvisations on piano and various non-Western woodwind and percussion. And, as a teacher, Timothy teaches private piano lessons and leads music programs in schools and youth centers in and around Springfield.
