Erin Johnstone
Violin and Piano: Beginner and Intermediate

Erin started piano at age 7, but it wasn’t until a decade later at 17 that she began violin and it was love at first screech. Since then, Erin has enjoyed playing both instruments with her church worship band and is excited to start your young (or old) one on their own musical journey. Next on her musical to-do list? Dust off her Uilleann pipes and see if she can’t do more than sound like a melancholic duck. Erin has always enjoyed working with children. She coached gymnastics for nearly 10 years and currently co-runs a playgroup at her church. She also has 3 young kids of her own to keep her on her toes.

Mitchell Mullin
Piano: Beginner and Intermediate

I first met Mitchell when his family joined our church in 2012. He was often found playing the piano after church and “Pumpkin Boogie” was his favourite tune.  I saw great talent in him and I wanted to take that talent to the next level.  He began studies in Royal Conservatory with me in September 2013.  He has performed and placed at Kiwanis Festivals and is working towards his Grade 9 Royal Conservatory Exams. For his freshman year of high school he was accepted into the Walkerville Centre for Creative Arts Piano Performance Program and achieved a mark of 94%. He is currently attending the University of Windsor working towards a degree in accounting. Mitchell is a worship and children’s ministry leader at his church.
