I'm an internationally ranked beatboxer. I have extensive a cappella experience, beatbox battle experience, and I'm extremely involved in the community. You should expect to have a great grasp of the basics after the first couple of lessons. Soon after, you'll learn some intermediate techniques and learn how to mesh them with your beats. Throughout every lesson, I will always stress that an excellent sense of time, groove and sound consistency is key!

I am currently a last year doctorate student in clarinet performance and the clarinet teaching assistant at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. In May 2016, I graduated from California State University with a Master in Music in clarinet performance under the teaching of Hakan Rosengren, international soloist. In 2017, prior to my doctorate studies, I studied with Boris Allakhverdyan, principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
I am also a Buffet Crampon USA artist.

I have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and America and I am seeking clarinet students of every level and age.

I will focus my teaching on your needs and can help you improve technique, musicianship and sound production. I also can help you get ready for auditions and recitals.

"I'm still very grateful that I found Megan and feel blessed to have this opportunity to work with her. Today my irritation with my progress was very high heading into the lesson but she rightly met it with patience and compassion, trying to understand my complaint and adjust the lesson plan to fit my needs. I'm realizing that learning to read, write, speak, and listen to music is not an even process. I'm having growth spurts with feelings of exuberance and then flutter to utter confusion. Overall I think that's probably pretty normal, for me anyway, because I care so much about what I'm doing. This is not an easy topic. I hope to feel more comfortable with the parts of it that are burdening me by this time next year; I'll probably be overwhelmed by something out of my scope of the moments consideration like composing music I want to play and hear. Thank you Megan."

"My 8-year-old son and I both take lessons with Margo and we are beyond impressed! My range has expanded significantly and my son's voice is going through a transition so he's been nervous about singing and speaking in public. His voice is much better and he even has more confidence now. I recommend Margo to everyone I know and now two of my friends train with her as well. We are all very happy to have found Margo!"

Introduction to Proper Violin Posture

You may feel that learning the violin is all about playing the right notes at the right time. It is – to an extent. But in order to learn the various techniques and play for longer periods of time, there are other skills that every student needs to master too, and that includes proper violin posture. Because it affects all areas of violin playing, such as tone, intonation, bow hold and stroke, as well as shifting, all violin technique is built around proper violin posture. If you ignore or fo …
