Scott Johnston has over 24 years of music education experience and has been teaching with the M.U.S.E. program since 2006. Scott received his BA Music and teaching credential from CSU Hayward. After working with students from 4th grade through High School, Scott realized that what he enjoyed most was teaching beginning musicians ensuring that they had a solid foundation as part of their musical education.
Scott says, “The beginning stage is the most important step in learning a new instrument, and I take pride in the fact that I will get your young musician started the proper way.” Scott is also an active performer around the NW and California having performed in the past with the Delta Wires, Lydia Pence and Cold Blood, and various ensembles with members of the San Francisco, and San Jose Symphonies. Currently Scott can be seen playing with a variety of bands including Professor Gall, Mike Curtis Jazz Project, and Northwest favorites Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts. On his time off it’s all about exploring the Great NW with his family, enjoying camping, hiking, biking, paddling, and long drives to new places. We are so fortunate to have Scott on our staff and the students love Mr. Johnston!
