MEET THE ARTIST
Aaron M. Johnson, MM, PhD, CCC-SLP, is a researcher and speech–language pathologist specializing in voice habilitation and rehabilitation. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at New York University School of Medicine, and a member of the NYU Voice Center. His research laboratory, funded by the National Institutes of Health, uses novel translational research methods to examine the effects of vocal training on laryngeal neuromuscular mechanisms in the aging larynx. As a clinician, he works with his physician colleagues to diagnose and treat voice disorders in performing artists. Both his research and clinical interests stem from his previous decade-long career as a professional classical singer and teacher of singing. He is actively involved in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the National Association of Teachers of Singing, and is currently serving as President of the Pan American Vocology Association.
