Madison Johnson has been playing the piano since she was 10 years old. She wanted to learn the instrument in order to become a songwriter. Madison learned how to read music from her dad and when she became too advanced for him to continue teaching her, she started taking piano lessons from a professional jazz pianist named Arlette McCoy Budwig. As a result of those lessons, Madison grew fond of jazz piano; she studied with Arlette for 5 years. Madison then moved on to study at Pasadena City College for 3 years under the direction of David Arnay, who was also a professional jazz pianist and instructor at USC. She was part of the jazz band and big band and performed several shows with them while attending PCC. She has been teaching private piano lessons for several years now. She is a singer/songwriter/pianist and played shows all over Southern California. She is in a band currently called "Color Me Home" with Rachel Lindley and does gigs on the side as a "piano man". She now resides in Austin, TX.
