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 (my current position of three years). Three words to describe my teaching style are: positive, patient, and firm.

Thank you for visiting my profile. Feel free to message me with any questions.

We completed 5 cello online lessons with Megan and it has been great! At first, I was not sure how online classes will work, but I should say that it has been very rewarding from the convenience of our home. My son has picked up quite a few techniques in the last few classes and I hear good improvement! Megan is very friendly and encouraging. I intend to continue with Megan.

My 14-year-old daughter has been taking lessons with Megan for about a year and really enjoys it. (These lessons are in addition to her orchestra class at school.) They work on pieces from upcoming school concerts or add-on pieces that Megan selects. The one-on-one sessions have made a big difference! (She's now 1st chair!) And Megan is also very flexible if we need to cancel or reschedule. She's awesome!

Megan is a one of a kind teacher. My daughter absolutely adores her! She connects on a personal level with all her students and helps them thrive in their musical career. She adapts the lessons perfectly and goes above and beyond what other private lesson teachers have done before.

My daughter raves about her lesson for several hours after. We will continue lessons with Megan for as long as possible!

I'm 36 years old and I learned a few instruments when I was younger (keyboards, bass, saxophone). I had never played a bowed instrument and always wanted to try; so I rented a cello and started taking lessons with Megan.

Megan is a fantastic teacher. During our first lesson, she took advantage of my prior musical experience to teach me as much as possible, as fast as I could learn it. I will continue to take lessons with her and I definitely recommend her!

As an adult beginner, I was very intimidated and fearful when I first took on cello lessons. My first online lesson with Megan was my first cello lesson EVER. She is a patient teacher who delivers high quality lessons. At the end of every lesson, I knew I received more than my money's worth. What really impressed me is that Megan really works to meet me where I'm at, not the other way around. She helps me with tips and techniques to support and challenge me as a student. I would recommend Megan for cello students out there! Beginners, you're in good hands!

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.

I loved it! We're already working on combinations of musical notations and arrangements of notes. It's what I really needed and wanted from a teacher. I added another lesson weekly to help me accelerate my learning.

I have taken three lessons with Megan so far. Megan is highly professional but friendly. She has exceptionally good ears, even when the lessons are conducted online. I just picked up viola a couple of years ago. As an adult viola learner, I appreciate Megan's style. She knows that we (adult learners) will improve with practice. She combines the basics (scales), techniques, and tone in each lesson. It seems that she sees my strengths and areas of improvements and adjusts her teaching style to match my skills. I highly recommend Megan to viola adult and child learners.

My first (online) cello lesson with Megan went very well! I was surprised to have learned so much during my first lesson. As an adult beginner, I was really appreciative of how Megan is very patient. I had to ask her a few times to repeat what she said, and she was really understanding in doing so. She also gave clear instructions. I'm really looking forward to practicing and having my next lesson!
