TEACHING

Teaching is vital to Meghan’s identity as a musician, a trait which has been instilled in her by her own teachers, Trevor Wye, Robert Willoughby, Linda Toote, and Michelle Caimotto. Her students consistently earn spots in the MMEA district and all-state ensembles and the many youth orchestras in the Boston area, including every level of orchestra/wind ensemble at New England Conservatory Preparatory School. Many of them have gone on to study at music schools throughout the US and Europe.

 

Meghan’s students have also been prizewinners at numerous competitions, including: YoungArts, American Protege Series at Carnegie Hall, International Shenzen (China) Woodwind Competition, Southwestern Youth Music Festival, Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall, Great Composers Competition Series, as well as Concerto Competition Winners throughout New England.

Lessons are structured to help students become well-rounded flutists. Each week, students prepare tone exercises, scales, finger exercises/technical patterns, etudes, and solo repertoire. Sight-reading is also a part of every lesson. Music theory and history are discussed when appropriate, usually in some form at each lesson, in order to help students develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the music they are studying. Proper posture, hand position, and breathing are also carefully approached subjects. Much attention is paid to intonation and musicality, no matter the experience level of the student. Careful focus on all of these aspects of flute playing and musicianship from the very beginning of a student’s study ensures proper fundamentals and a solid set-up for whichever path music may take them in life. I believe strongly in a methodical approach to learning, and I carefully discuss how to practice with my students. Conversations about practice strategies and practice routines are tailored to each student.  

Meghan is on faculty at Saint Anselm College, New England Conservatory Preparatory School,
Powers Music School, Phillips Academy Andover, Concord Academy, and Cremona International Music Academy.
