Erin Johnson is a classical guitar teacher who has been teaching guitar to adults and children ages 4 to retirement for over 25 years. She has a specialty in teaching Guitar for the Very Young. Even children as young as four can learn the joy of making music. (Parental involvement very helpful!) Through games and special techniques, Erin will introduce familiar melodies to the children. They will learn to play comfortably on a small-sized nylon-stringed guitar. Playing music and developing a love of music can help a child in so many ways, including boosting their self-esteem. Voluntary recital opportunities offered.
Erin has been a performer in several bands, ensembles and as a soloist. To further her teaching vocation, she participated in Suzuki Guitar Summer Teaching Workshops for 10 years and was a member of the Suzuki Guitar Committee for four years, helping to develop repertoire curriculum for the method’s early books.
Besides music, Erin’s passions include her love for God, her husband Dana, cats and dogs, reading and art!
