It all started when…
Abigail Johnson is a collegiate pianist from the Texas hill country. She is a small-town girl with a deep-rooted love for her local communities and a passion for teaching.
She began taking piano lessons when she was 8-years-old, and was instructed in both the Suzuki piano method and the classical method. She continued this hybrid education for 11 years, participating in many Suzuki Piano camps at Texas State University. In more recent years, she has also taken the “Every Child Can” course from the Greater Austin Suzuki Institute, which seeks to help teachers understand the musical potential that lies within every child.
During her last two years of high school, Abigail began to search for opportunities to gain teaching experience. Throughout those two years, she offered beginner piano lessons from her family's home, and formed a small studio there. She also taught on contract her senior year with a small-town music studio in Blanco, TX, where she had the privilege of instructing adult students for the first time.
A junior this year, Abigail plans to complete her bachelor of piano performance and pedagogy at Texas State University under the instruction of Dr. Jason Kwak.
