At Western, Megan was the recipient of the Sherwood Fox Fellowship, as well as multiple other scholarships and bursaries based on academic achievement. Megan has performed in a number of chamber groups with a special interest in trio music, and early music. Being a member of the early music studio at Western, fostered a love for the harpsichord and the organ, and produced opportunities such as a residency with Tafelmusik. She has played the pipe organ for many years, holding the position of music director at St’ Paul’s Anglican Church in Sackville, New Brunswick, where she completed her undergraduate degree at Mount Allison University. Megan also has worked as the Assistant Music Director at Rosedale United Church, and accompanist at College Street United Church in Toronto, and as interim organist at a number of different churches. After obtaining her Master’s Degree in Piano Performance from Western University, Megan’s passion for piano pedagogy led her to completing her Honours Degree in Psychology from York University. Her research entails understanding the psychological impacts associated with using creativity, and the relationship between creativity and mental illness. Megan is actively teaching piano, believing that each student has a unique approach to learning that should allow their love for music to flourish, addressing each student with the approach that best suits them. In this way, learning about each child’s uniqueness is what is motivating Megan’s pursuits in Psychology, and has helped her become a better piano teacher.
