Don Johnson

Don Johnson
Sauble Beach On
Honourary Director - Trumpet
- many professional musicians know the name Don Johnson from his performance days with the Toronto Symphony, Toronto Philharmonic and the Canadian Opera Company, as well as many CBC Television and Radio Shows. During that time, Don also became one of the busiest Brass Instructors in Canada, teaching from his own studio in downtown Toronto.
Don was also music director at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Toronto, backing many name acts. Later, from 1973 to 1995, he was Professor of Trumpet and also Head of Music at Humber College.
Don was performing actively in his later years in numerous Brass Ensembles, conducting several stage bands as well as serving as clinician for the Jupiter Instrument Company, lecturing across Canada.
Sadly Don passed in the spring of 2016 and is sorely missed by scores of friends and musicians, including countless brass players whom he taught and mentored throughout his illustrious career.
