For about a year I took voice lessons from Megan until I was unable to. The school of music through which she was associated called her “a gem,” and that was so true.
Megan is a professional musician, classically trained, a performer, a natural teacher, vibrant and full of life. During our lessons she was fun and encouraging, a cheerleader and motivator.
Warm-ups were technical, specific in its focus. There was always a clear explanation for the intent of these exercises and so it was a wonderful education. Instruction was visual because Megan always demonstrated; she was so easy to imitate and follow. She has a keen, knowing ear; always she could pinpoint any weakness in my voice and offered ways to correct.
Besides rehearsing choir music with her, which was immensely helpful, I learned to sing a wide range of music including a 40’s pop standard and some very cool soul music. She gave me space and encouragement to try and embrace different genres of music. I now sing with more confidence and have greatly expanded my range and strength as a soprano.
