Lynn Johnson's career as a solo and collaborative performer has taken her across Canada, throughout the United States and Europe as well as on-air broadcasts with CBC and Radio Canada. At Mount Allison she teaches piano, collaborative piano and chamber music. She earned a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from North Texas State University and a Master of Music in Collaborative Piano at the University of Southern California where she studied with renowned collaborative pianist, Gwendolyn Koldofsky and harpsichordist, Malcolm Hamilton. She is also the recipient of the premier prix avec distinction in Collaborative Piano and Chamber Music from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels, Belgium.

Her interest in repertoire for two pianos resulted in a CD of works for two pianos entitled Dialogue with pianist, Edmund Dawe. The CD includes works by Johannes Brahms, Maurice Ravel, Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergie Rachmaninoff, Haim Alexander and Canadian composer Clermont Pépin. It was released in 2012 to critical acclaim, garnering nominations for both the New Brunswick Music Awards and the East Coast Music Awards.

Her many years at Mount Allison University have included numerous enjoyable collaborations with faculty, visiting artists and students. She maintains a very active agenda as teacher, adjudicator and chamber musician.
