Drums | Morgan

Johnny started playing drums at the age of 7 years old. He taught himself his favorite songs and would play along with them until he nailed them down. He would practice everyday for hours and hours every day. He started doing professional paid gigs at the age of 15 and began playing with other musicians in the scene. Johnny attended and was given scholarships two times for the Berklee college of music drum camp in high school. Johnny has performed along big acts such as the band “PVRIS” and rapper / performer “TYGA” and many others. Johnny loves to teach with passion and the love of the instrument and how much joy and inspiration that gives others. Johnny wants his students to learn music through the art of drumming and play and think like a musician. Music is about having fun and connecting with others. Johnny is very creative with his drumming and how he thinks and approaches certain concepts on the drums makes it a huge plus for teaching a beginner in a totally different and creative and super fun way. Johnny just recently moved to the Salt Lake City area this year from Alberta, Canada. Johnny looks forward to meeting the parents and teaching his students with the utmost joy and fun on the instrument and to rock on!

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
