Matthew Johnston

Hi! I’m Matthew Johnston and I will be teaching Music at York Road Elementary. I was born in Charleston, SC but grew up in Lancaster, SC. I moved to Rock Hill 10 years ago when I started my Guitar Performance Degree at Winthrop University. I graduated from Winthrop in 2016. Since then, I have been teaching private lessons in South and North Carolina. I also have a band, CYAN, that plays at local breweries and other venues in the region. I’m excited to be part of the team and look forward to bringing music and joy to all the kids! Looking forward to continuing my time at YRES. 

I live in Rock Hill and married my wife, Amelia in 2019. We have a dog named Fifa and he is so sweet! We are expecting our first baby in January 2024!
