Miss Jade, International School of Music Alstonville, Music Lessons, Piano Lessons, Musicianship  Teacher – Jade Johnston

Hi I’m Jade Johnston. I teach Jitterbugs and Beebopper classes at ISM Alstonville. I grew up attending piano lessons and singing in choirs. Music has always been in my life. During my Bachelor of Primary Teaching degree at Queensland University of Technology, I majored in Music and taught in Queensland schools in their classroom music program. I also had fun conducting choirs and bands.

Growing up in the area, we decided to move back to raise our three beautiful children. With many years teaching experience in Primary school music, Special education, Early childhood, and having a local connection, it is a joy for me to teach at ISM Alstonville.

I am passionate about introducing young children to the language of music and how fun it can be!

Emily has a lifelong appreciation for music, shared by her family. She began piano lessons at the age of 5, taught by her sister Lisa. This led to the completion of AMEB Grade Eight Piano. At the age of 16, due to her passion for singing, Emily started singing lessons. This led to performances at weddings, various concerts and exhibitions.

Emily’s love for music has brought her to the International School of Music so that she can share the gift of music with future generations.
