About Josh

Joshua Hanna is an award-winning music composer with more than 15 years experience in the film and television industry. He’s had a passion for music since the age of five, when he got his first piano-toy piano. Joshua’s passion and unique skills in music have opened up many doors for him. His music has reached such diverse places as church settings, the independent film industry, radio, and iPhone/iPad Apps.

Joshua has been an active composer since the late 90s when he found himself searching for ways to improve sound design and musical concepts, incorporating emotions into his compositions. Earning a degree in Audio Engineering from Shenandoah University Conservatory in 2001, Josh became interested in film music after being challenged by a professor to play something different. Never shying away from a challenge, Joshua sought to create a unique sound that was unheard of.

Whether he’s composing music for apps, creating music for fun, or helping an artist with engineering, he is always pushing the boundaries of excellence. His goal is to change the way people see and play music.

This same passion for innovation is what birthed an idea to create a music book series that has never been done before. Unlike other music books that consist mainly of reading song sheets, simple illustrations and well-known songs like “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” Joshua’s music book series includes original concepts, everyday analogies, and relationships between sight, sound and imagery. Using nature-influenced visuals and breath-taking images, Joshua relates musical concepts to nature and relatable themes that are sure to inspire and motivate students to work outside of the box.

Working outside of the box is what allows Joshua the foresight to look deep into music and find mysterious and sounds that have never been uncovered. Joshua uses his innovative technique when teaching students piano, guitar, music theory, and assisting voice over artists with their recordings.
Joshua is a visionary, always pushing the boundaries of music as well as working closely with his clients to bring their vision to life.
