Jim Johnston (Drums)

Jim Johnston is one of Alberta’s busiest musicians. His education from Humber College’s performance program, studying with some of the world’s premier jazz musicians at the Banff Center and privately with drummers of all genres across North America allows him the opportunity to relish in a diverse performance life. Jim can be spotted perming regularly with the likes of the Calgary Jazz Orchestra, Theater Calgary, The Calgary Stampede Grandstand Show, Tim Tamashiro, Revv52, and Joanna Borromeo in addition to keeping a busy teaching schedule as well as operating his own music school/cafe Cornerstone Music Cafe. This gives Jim the opportunity to wear many hats including mentor, teacher, entrepreneur, father, husband, and performer. All with the goal of nurturing a creative, prosperous cultural environment for both youth and professional musicians in Calgary.
