Hi, I am Burr Johnson, a musician, producer, and educator
I have produced many music records, collaborated with many artists and perform my own original compositions in the Burr Johnson Band.
I am the founder and CEO of Burr Bear Music, a children’s music company specializing in the development of children’s perceptual motor skills through music and dance.
My Music Teaching follows my personal methods of instruction. I teach a wide range of musicians from total beginners to top players in the industry.
“He’s one Bad A** Mother F***r”
“A pleasure to have on my stage”
“Burr Johnson is a monster player. His tone sounds like bells””
“Burr Johnson’s music is both intelligent and inspired, I really enjoyed playing together”
Not only is Burr Johnson the world’s leading authority on electronic guitar systems and how to get the best and most musical results from them, he is also an absolutely incredible player. He can just flat out burn. The concepts that he shared with me had a big impact on how I think about using these systems and the tips that he passed on to me reflected his mastery in how to get the guitar to communicate effectively first to the machines, but ultimately to the audience.
“Burr Johnson is a truly great player…”

Guitar Player Magazine
“Burr is a harmony-oriented player who is as comfortable playing clean chord-solo phrases as he is laying down a barrage of blistering fusion licks. Burr augments his sound with guitar-synth soundscapes, which serve a foundations for his masterful soloing”
