Johanna Novich Leonard, a Madison native, graduated from Edgewood College in May 2017 with degrees in Piano Performance and Music Media and Production. She began studying piano at the age of six, and was very successful in music festivals and competitions along the way. Her studies continued through college under the instruction of Dr. Beatriz Aguilar. At Edgewood, she twice won their semi-annual concerto competition, and had the honor of performing Haydn and Beethoven with their chamber orchestra.
In addition to teaching piano in Waunakee and Madison, Johanna will be taking the position of vocal director at First Act Children’s Theater this summer. She also continues to cultivate an interest for live sound, recording, and editing with gigs around town.
As a teacher, Johanna is proud to have worked with many students from diverse backgrounds. There are many valuable skills to learn from studying music, and she’s excited to join the Rhapsody Arts team and share her passion for music with her students.
