Confidence and a strong voice add to a performance, so this is why Megan strives to offer these things to each, individual client. With a knowledge of current scientific findings, Megan guides each student through an artful study of music, providing encouragement for being the best singer or professional voice-user he or she can be. Through an un-biased and direct approach, Megan hopes to be part of the solution for whatever problem(s) students encounter with the voice, so that her clients can progress to be authentic, confident, and healthy. Megan believes effective teaching takes study, careful listening, expectation, observation, and above all else, patience and laughter.
The goal with every client here is to achieve a functional sound at every appointment so that the voice is as strong as possible. Then, achieving professional and personal goals can be reached!
In addition to teaching clientele, Megan founded the Nashville Art Song Society in 2018, where audience members can enjoy learning about this vast genre in a warm environment. The Nashville Art Song Society unites audiences through the celebration of art song. The NASS promotes the traditional performance styles of art song while exploring how this tradition informs the art of singing all styles of music. Through the performance of art song, listeners can begin to understand the place art song holds in the classical singing community, and more broadly, the world of vocal music, while expanding his or her own musical knowledge and taste.
A mezzo-soprano, Megan has been described as “having a natural talent for the stage.” Most recently, Megan has sung the role of Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro as well as collaborating to create the role of Madame Paradise in Lost & Found. Other roles sung include Mother Marie in Dialogues of the Carmelites, Miss Pinkerton in Old Maid and the Thief and Hänsel in scenes from Hansel and Gretel. A versatile performer, Megan has also played musical theatre characters, such as The Witch from Into the Woods and Mae Jones from Kurt Weill’s Street Scene.
