Traditional and Suzuki Violin
Originally from Michigan, Megan began lessons at the age of six, then studied Violin Performance at Michigan State University with Walter Verdehr, where she also performed with a variety of symphony orchestras. She obtained her bachelor's degree and graduated with honors in 2012. She moved to Minnesota in late 2021 and became Principal II Violin for the Mankato Symphony.
In addition to orchestral and chamber music, she loves playing and performing Celtic fiddle tunes. She has taught both styles to students of all ages for more than a decade, both through a private studio and at the Blue Lake Fine Arts Suzuki Family Camp in northern Michigan in the summers. When she isn't playing or listening to music, she's trying a new recipe, reading a new book, shooting traditional archery, or planning a travel adventure. She lives in Mankato with her husband Derek and their ever-growing library.
