Voice Instructor, Music

I am a voice adjunct at Jamestown Community College, where I teach private lessons. I joined the JCC staff in August of 2018.

Originally from Iowa, I have a bachelor’s in vocal performance from Waldorf College, Forest City, Iowa. From there I moved to Michigan to achieve a master’s in vocal pedagogy from Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan. I taught privately for 10 years in Michigan. I was the vocal director for the Howell Community Theatre’s Summer Camp for three years and directed their youth production of The Little Mermaid Jr. and played piano in the pit for The Music Man.

During college I gained years of vocal, piano, organ and harpsichord study. As a vocalist I have experience in musical theatre and operettas. My most memorable stage roles are Mary Hatch from Miracle in Bedford Falls, Susannah from The Marriage of Figaro, Lucy from The Telephone, Eve from Children of Eden, Laurey from Oklahoma, and the Fairy Godmother from Cinderella. Other performing experiences have been with the Detroit’s Cantata Academy Chorale, The Oakland Chorale, The Livingston County Women’s Chorus, Serendipity, and solo recitals.

Currently I teach private voice lessons out of my home, The Johnson Music Studio, in Jamestown, New York. I have been teaching privately since 2004. I taught voice at Oakland University and The Rochester Conservatory of Music in Michigan. Many of my students have majored in music and several have become professional musicians and teachers.

With over 20 years of accompanying experience, I am actively an accompanist for NYSSMA solos, choirs, recitals, and concerts. I am in my third year as vocal director for Jamestown High School’s musicals as well as the pit pianist. I am a member of the vocal group Serendipity.

My husband is an accompanist and organist in the area. We moved to Jamestown in 2014 where we currently reside with our three children.
