Annaeka Johnson

Faculty: Early Childhood Music


Lawrence University, BA, Oboe Performance and English


Annaeka Johnson is an Early Childhood Music instructor at the Merit School of Music.

Annaeka has worked at Merit since 2016, teaching Early Childhood classes since 2018. Early childhood development and psychology have been a particular interest for Annaeka since high school—children’s brains are amazing! She loves watching Merit’s youngest students discover the joy of music through song and dance.

When she’s not at Merit, Annaeka can be found singing to her plants and enjoying time with friends and family.


I’m With Her is my favorite group. I love how beautifully this female trio sings and makes music together!

“I love the sense of community that comes from making music together! It connects people through time and space and brings so much joy.

The students who come to Merit, young and old, make it so special. They come from all corners of the city to make beautiful music and connect with each other. Every child should have the opportunity to make music with other people!”
