More Testimonials & Words of Appreciation
I consider myself very fortunate to have found you, to be able to work with you and learn how to do what I have wanted to do for years. Before you creating a symphony was just a dream that I thought was impossible, now I can see that I can learn the missing pieces I needed , to play & share the wonderful melodies that have always lived inside my head & heart for so many years. Music is indeed a part of heaven on this earth. It enriches the brain, body, and soul. Thanks so much for all your positive encouragement through this happy journey.
You are awesome.
I’ve known Peggy since I was 5. She’s one of the most talented women I’ve ever met it my life. She taught me everything I knew about music and pushed me to know things I didn’t really want to know at the time, but later realized were very important. I can say that Peggy shaped my childhood more so than my parents. She means the world to me, she’s a huge influence, not only in my life, not only in Atlanta, but In the music scene in general. She is my second mother.
Taryn Smith – Vocalist
When your teenager is determined to venture into the highly competitive world of music, it becomes quickly apparent they will need guidance. In the advent of social media, the industry has changed dramatically and it is imperative to understand the way it works and how to navigate it. As a mom and manager to a 15 year old singer/songwriter, I prayed for someone who was principled, talented, knowledgeable, and accessible to shepherd us through the process. My prayers were answered with Peggy Still Johnson. She is, foremost, a talented musician and teacher, but more importantly, a friend and mentor with a real heart and love for fostering talent. This mom is forever grateful for her dedication to my most prized possession and for seeing in her what I have always seen. With Peggy at the wheel, I don’t question “whether” she will make it, I only wonder “when” it will happen!!

“Within just a few lessons, Peggy has transformed my voice, she has prepared me with the tools to open up my sound, while keeping it strong and yet learning how to use control to articulate and soften my delivery when needed. I will definitely continue to see her, I’ve never known a more effective vocal coach.”

Justin Guarini – American Idol star, Singer, Songwriter, Recording Artist, Actor, Film and Broadway star
After one session with Peggy Johnson, I feel like a whole new world of singing has opened up for me! In less than an hour, Peggy taught me how to protect my voice with warm-up and cool-down routines, how to expand my vocal range with a series of vocal exercises, and how to increase my endurance with better breath support technique. Peggy is an incredible vocal coach and I can hardly wait to see what she’ll teach me at our next session.
