Her musical endeavors have taken her all around the world, performing in such venues as the Sydney Opera House, the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Radio City Music Hall, and most recently the Paramount Theater here in Austin, Texas. Megan received her BA in Performance from San Diego State University under the instruction of Rebecca Cambell and Tom Stauffer, and has studied with principal members of the Berlin Philharmonic, the San Diego Symphony, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She also studied classical guitar with Fred Benedetti, (a pupil of Andrés Segovia) and George Svbobada.
