Timothy Black teaches Choral Music and AP Music Theory at Kadena High School in Okinawa, Japan. He earned his B.A. in Music Education at Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington. He received his Master of Music in Choral Conducting at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Timothy believes today's teachers are obligated to groom the next generation of leaders, taking a personal responsibility for their successful integration into society. He demonstrates this by meeting the needs of the visual, auditory, and tactile-kinesthetic learners seamlessly and simultaneously. His goal is to "Reach All -Teach All".

Tim's superintendent states, "He has successfully inspired the students and motivated them to achieve excellent skills." A principal says, "Mr. Black is an incredible teacher that always strives to not only improve his program, but ensure that his students are receiving the best instruction possible." A parent lauds him when he writes, "He has taught our child to persevere even when it would be easier to just give up."
