Welcome to Kimmel Farm Elementary's Music Program and to the 2015-2016 school year! My name is William Ward and I am the full-time music teacher. I possess a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Lowell State College and a Master's of Music from the University of Lowell, Massachusetts.
This is my first year at Kimmel Farm Elementary School and my eleventh in the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools.
Since moving to North Carolina, I have taught at Mineral Springs Middle School, Philo Middle School, Hill Arts Magnet School and Flat Rock Middle School. I was the director of the Young Men's Ensemble of the Winston Salem Children's Chorus, and the changed voices (middle and high school young men) of the Saint Paul's Choristers. Also, I taught in the Royal School of Church Music program at Saint Paul's here in Winston-Salem.
My professional memberships include: NAfME (National Association for Music Education), NCMEA (North Carolina Music Educators Association).
