My name is Morgan and I am a clarinetist and music educator. I currently teach middle school band in metro Atlanta and am a performing member of the Tara Winds Symphonic Band. Before moving to Georgia, I taught band for 8 years in Houston Texas. Many of my students are successful making honor bands and earn top ratings at solo and ensemble.

I have a Bachelor of Music in Clarinet Performance and a Bachelor of Music Education from Florida State University. In addition to playing and teaching clarinet, I love spending time with my husband and 1 year old twins. I look forward to meeting you!

Morgan is a fantastic clarinet player and teacher!!! She is one of the most patient people I know - which is a great quality for being a mother of twins! :) :) - and she has a lot of experience teaching in schools and privately. Her teaching will give you the skills to succeed on your instrument and bring confidence to your playing, all while being an encouraging mentor. In Texas the standards are very high for music students and I am sure that she will bring that level of excellence to the Atlanta area or wherever you are!

Morgan came to our home to provide clarinet lessons for our daughter who was a 5th grader at the time. She is an excellent teacher.
Morgan is reliable, patient, and always encouraging. At the end of each lesson, they played a duet together which was always my favorite part to listen to. Our daughter learned so much from Morgan and it definitely helped her prepare to play in the school band. We highly recommend her!

Ms. Fargo was the Band director at my middle school for several years. We worked together on many projects as I was the orchestra director next door. She is one of the best teachers anyone could have. She understands music, and pedagogy at the highest level. She has a wonderful personality and work well with children and adults alike. You would be lucky to have studied with Ms. Fargo

Morgan is a phenomenal clarinetist and a clear, patient teacher. She has worked with students at all levels from 5th graders just starting out to high school students studying the classical clarinet repertoire.
