Hi! My name is Megan. I am a Wichita State graduate with a degree in music education. I have taught mandolin/violin/viola lessons for the past 7 years in Wichita, KS and in the KC area. I am also a elementary strings teacher for the KCK school district. Besides teaching music, I have also played mandolin/viola for several music projects from a typical Irish band to a free improve jazz ensemble. I am a very versatile player so I can teach/play from Irish to rock to jazz.

*** Lesson Details ***
When it comes to teaching private music lessons, I am a laid back teacher but I still have high expectations for each student. I really do not have a set curriculum because each student wants to learn something different.I use all my resources I have in order to meet the student's need. Whatever a student's avenue they want to take, I am confident the student will have that much more knowledge before they had started.
I can teach mandolin any level and violin I can teach through book 3 of Suzuki or any other method book and viola through book 2 of Suzuki

*** Studio Equipment ***
Be in an open room much like a living room with amps, instruments, and other musical equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have their own instrument. I expect them to have their own music stand and an amp if need be. I will provide copies of music at a small charge ($5) and would be willing to purchase the material if the student gives the money up front.

*** Specialties ***
For the most part, I play Irish, Jazz, Blues, and Classical.
