On faculty at both Berklee College of Music and Wellesley College, pianist Doug Johnson has performed extensively throughout the U.S. and internationally. He has toured with Grace Kelly and performed with Esperanza Spalding among others. Trained as a classical musician, his versatile repertoire ranges from jazz standards to Latin music, to Chopin.
In addition to his performance work, Doug provides lessons and workshops in Bodymapping, a somatic (mind-body) discipline based upon the scientific fact that the brain contains neural maps of bodily functions and structures that govern our body usage. Musicians who embrace the principles of Body Mapping enjoy freedom of movement that enhances their ability for musical expression, and avoid placing themselves at risk of injury.
