With a life-long interest in the intersection of artistry and education, Meagan Johnson is a choral conductor, Alexander Technique teacher, and voice educator. She holds a Master of Music in voice performance and Bachelor of Music in voice performance and music education from Ithaca College. Following her music studies, Ms. Johnson completed the 1,600-hour teacher-certification program at Alexander Technique Urbana (IL). Over the last decade, Ms. Johnson has explored the application of the Alexander Technique in choral rehearsal, in the voice studio, and in the day-to-day work of musicians.
Since 2015, Meagan Johnson has served as Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Women’s Chorus, and was the founding director of the Indianapolis World Music Chorus. From 2006-2012, she directed the Amasong chorus in Urbana, Illinois, and with Amasong produced two compilations of live concert recordings.
Ms. Johnson teaches Alexander Technique at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and maintains active studios teaching Alexander Technique and voice in Indianapolis and Bloomington, Indiana. A sought-after clinician for choirs and conferences, she regularly presents workshops about the intersection of Alexander Technique with choral singing, performing arts, and music education.
As a voice teacher, she guides singers toward free vocal development, drawing on her dual training in Alexander Technique and vocal pedagogy to empower the whole singer toward artistry and freedom with excellence. She especially loves working with adult amateur singers who would like to discover or re-discover their own voices.
Though her own background is in music, Meagan Johnson enjoys exploring the Alexander Technique teacher with actors, dancers, business professionals, athletes, and anyone who would like to find more poise, stress relief, and freedom in their daily lives. Ms. Johnson resides in Indianapolis, where she balances parenting, teaching, and exploring new frontiers.
