About Megan M.

I am originally from North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have been involved in music, theatre and dance since the age of 3. I also have worked with various professional children's theatre companies and run my own touring theatre company. I have been a Zumba instructor since 2011 and I have been a swimming instructor/lifeguard since 2003.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that learning anything new should be a fun experience. If it's not fun then you're more likely to get frustrated and quit. My teaching philosophy is that I want to know what inspires you and create lessons that will keep you or your children interested and having fun. During the first lesson we will figure out a personalized lesson and go from there.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For violin students I expect them to have a proper size violin, shoulder rest and bow.
For beginner piano students you should have at least a 61 key keyboard, but an 88 keyboard piano is preferred.

*** Specialties ***
I'm very personable, very communicative and I work well with all ages.

My daughter loved it. I wish there was a better parking situation but it really isn't too bad. Parking in the building is 15 mins free then $5 every hour. The teacher was professional, friendly, and communicative.

Great teacher to learn!

Megan is great to learn with. I play other instruments but I wanted to start learning the piano and how to read music. She was very patient and really enforced the importance of getting into the habit of practicing, even if it's just 15 minutes a day! I highly recommend her for piano beginner adults and children.

Patient, communicative and fun!

I played the violin years ago and decided to pick it back up again. Megan was very patient and was very communicative with how to help me. She also came up with very fun ways to keep me practicing. She worked very well with me as an adult but I've also seen her teach very young children and her patience and creative teaching shines with the young ones as well! If you're looking for a personable, fun teacher that inspires, Megan is the teacher for you.
