Mt. Juliet, TN - October, 2015 | | Competitions | NAfME

The winner of the 2015 National Student Melody Competition is 17 year old Joseph Ham from Ruston, LA for his composition "The City of Joy."

"Participating in school band programs since the sixth grade, I have been extremely fortunate to have had three outstanding band directors who not only have challenged me to become the best player I could be, but also have encouraged me in my journey as a composer," said high school senior Joseph Ham. "I plan to enroll at Louisiana Tech next fall, majoring in Cyber-engineering with a minor in Music Technology, with a goal of creating music technology for the next generation. And, of course, I will never stop composing and playing! Without music education and the teachers who taught me, I never would have known the possibilities that exist."
