Justin Walker strives to instill his passion for music in everyone whose path he crosses. As a performer, Justin is an active tenor soloist and choral singer who has appeared onstage at numerous venues throughout the state of Florida, performing repertoire ranging from Baroque to contemporary works. Drawing influence from singers such as Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, and Hansi Kьrsch, Justin has developed into a versatile performer known for his beautiful tone and expressive musicality.
A native of Florida, Justin was born and raised in the Melbourne area, where he studied under Metropolitan Opera singer Mark Baker until his relocation to Jacksonville, where he studies with James Hall at the University of North Florida while pursuing his degrees in Music Education and Music Performance. Justin also maintains a successful private teaching studio in the Jacksonville area, where he teaches voice, guitar, and piano.
As a composer, Justin Walker writes for ensembles of all combinations, including string quartets, choirs, orchestras, small chamber ensembles, and soloists (such as in his most recent work, УPrelude in F MajorУ, for piano). Combining his heavy-metal past, classical training, and interest in Celtic and Appalachian folk music, Justin has created a unique blend of styles that shines through in all of his compositions.
