About Megan R.

Hello, Welcome to my profile. I am glad you are considering string lessons! I am currently accepting online or in-person students. I am a professional teacher as well as a cellist from the age of 9 and a violinist from the age of 18. I earned my bachelors degree in Music Education with an Instrumental Emphasis in 2015 and my Masters in Music Education, Instrumental Pedagogy in 2019. I have experience with learners of a variety of styles and ages by teaching in the public school system - Elementary Music for three years and Middle School Orchestra for four years. Three words to describe my teaching style are: positive, patient, and firm. I enjoy curating lessons and repertoire for individual needs and interests. I also use a variety of technology resources that I create myself. Thank you for visiting my profile. Feel free to message me with any questions.

Megan was really good, patient, and kind. I lost connectivity twice, and she never got frustrated. She took the time to help tune the instrument and showed me how to do a scale, all in lesson 1!. Very good teacher.
