As the youngest of four children, I was born into a very musical family. By the age of 3, I was belting out incorrect lyrics in our stationwagon and "Vogue"-ing in my living room. Growing up in Pennsylvania, my siblings and I often made up songs together (and we still have the cassette tapes to prove it!).
I have been in various choirs throughout my life. My most memorable musical experiences include singing with the high school Madrigals in Switzerland and competing with my a cappella group in college. My move to Austin in 2008 only felt complete when I joined River City Pops, a show choir that I am proud to be a member of.
I earned a B.S. in Psychology and a Master's in Elementary Education while at the University of Pittsburgh. I have been a full-time nanny for two years and have been lucky enough to participate in six sessions at Heartsong Music. Through this experience, I have seen first-hand amazing effects that the Music Together® program has on children. I am so excited to share my love of music with others and to work with all of the beautiful families that enter through Heartsong's doors.
Meg completed her Certification Level I training in March 2014.
"We could not have had a better teacher. You can tell Meg really enjoys what she does, she is an excellent teacher and her love for the kids shows. We will continue next semester with Meg!"
"Meg is a wonderfully caring teacher. She is very vocal in letting the families know how well they are doing and gives encouragement in very positive ways."
"Meg is such a wonderful and caring teacher! She has a smile that lights up the room and all the kids are in awe of her when she sings and plays the guitar She has made such an impact on my daughter and I will forever be grateful to her for the growth my daughter has made."
"We have been with Meg for four sessions. My son enjoys going to class and sitting next to Meg. When we are at home, he often conducts his own music class and pretends he is Meg!"
"Meg is excellent! She keeps the flow of class going nicely and is very talented and fun."
"What great learning experiences for my son and his language development blossomed. He loves being with the kids in class and he loves Meg!"
"We really enjoyed Meg's enthusiasm and involvement with the class. She made us feel very welcome."
"Meg showed a real interest in the kids and how we were implementing things at home."
"It's been great. Meg is a wonderful teacher and I truly feel comfortable in her class. I am not a singer or a dancer and I have never felt like she judges me, in fact just the opposite, she encourages me. She's wonderful with the kids and appears to really enjoy what she is doing. She is definitely a great teacher!"
"Meg always has a positive and upbeat personality during class. She encourages the children to be themselves and feel comfortable singing and playing instruments. My daughter enjoys Meg so much that she is always anxious to see Meg again and attend her class. Meg is a positive asset to Heartsong Music."
