My name is Pete Johnston, and I am a bass player, composer, teacher, and podcast host living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This site is a document of my various musical, scholarly, and teaching activities.
I have a Ph.D. in ethnomusicology from York University, and am currently employed as a sessional lecturer at Ryerson University and Humber College. Sometimes I find the time to make some music with my friends. Please have a look and listen, and get in touch should you be curious about my work.
