Brett Johnson

As a music educator, Brett Johnson continues to grow and improve his craft in empowering his students to succeed as musicians and citizens. He earned his Bachelor of Music Education at WWU, and recently returned to Washington state for family reasons. He now teaches middle school band in Spanaway. While living in Colorado for five years, he earned his Masters in Music Education at the University of Colorado-Boulder. The combination of graduate study and teaching at Twin Peaks Charter Academy were significant experiences for his professional growth. You could say he found his “groove” in Colorado while overcoming challenges to build something he is still proud of. He stresses the importance of excellence in performance and comprehensive musicianship in his classroom.
