I teach creativity through inspiration! I will play regularly during your violin lessons so you can hear clear demonstrations of each new technique and piece. I will help students build each skill set step by step. I have heard many students lament a lack of innate talent, but I believe we all the the ability to musically express ourselves- we just need to study the technique to help us navigate our instrument!

About Meghan Y.

Meghan Yost, violist and pedagogue, strongly believes in music as a vehicle for human expression and social change. She teaches and performs with organizations across the country that provide training for young musicians. Her commitment to accessibility has led her to work with El- Sistema inspired programs such as Atlanta Music Project, Porterville Strings, and Carnegie Hall’s PlayUSA. She regularly travels to give masterclasses and workshops throughout the U.S. and this year was invited as Guest Artist to Sunway University in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to give masterclasses and concerts. Additionally Ms. Yost serves as Viola Professor at Clayton State University.

An active chamber musician, Ms. Yost has collaborated with Harlem Quartet, Dali Quartet, Elmar Oliveira, Petar Jankovic, Bright Feather Ensemble, and Kaleidoscope Chamber Orchestra. She regularly performs at The Porterville Strings Festival and the Atlanta Music Project Summer Chamber Series. Past festival performances include Kneisel Hall Chamber Music School, the Dali Quartet International Music Festival, and the Garth Newel Music Center. Love of chamber music also led her to collaborate with the indie-folk rock band River City Extension, touring the continental U.S. for two years. Her live session recordings can be heard on Audiotree, Little Elephant Room, and Daytrotter.

Yost currently performs with orchestras across the southeast, including the Atlanta Opera, Charleston Symphony Orchestra, and Columbus Symphony Orchestra. She has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, China, Malaysia, and Brazil.

Yost received her Bachelor of Music from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where she studied with Yuval Gotlibovich and Alan deVeritch; and her Master of Music from Lynn Conservatory of Music under Ralph Fielding.
