TEACHING ARTIST AND COACH

Megan is a teaching artist and also offers coaching on sides, scenes and monologues for the auditioning performing artist. We all spend a great deal of time and money to develop that creative talent...but when you get the email or phone call for that audition, you need the necessary prep time to book the job!

Do you need an outside perspective on whether your choices for a scene or monologue is working?

 Megan will help you define those choices and go into an audition room feeling confident and prepared!

 Coaching services include:

  • one-on-one meetings to finesse sides, monologues or scenes
  • Assistance with Cover Letters, Resumes, Websites and Marketing tools 
  • Assistance with packaging for auditions, contrasting pieces and finding a monologue that suits your type!
  • positive affirmations and a lil bit of soul searching to discover the fears and obstacles that are getting in your way!

Megan has been in the business for fifteen years and was signed with one of the biggest agencies in NYC at 15 years old, if there is anyone who knows persistence and how to present your authentic self - it’s this lady!

"I have come to Megan for advice so many times about my career - whether it be headshots, song choice advice, or how to talk to agents.  I trust her knowledge of the business. She has never led me in the wrong direction with her advice and has a great deal of professional experience. I always feel confident in myself and my choices after I've spoken with her." Brittany Jeffery, Actor National Tour of TITANIC

"Megan was a constant joy to work with. She is a person of maturity and integrity, charm and humor, completely cooperative with colleagues and teachers alike. I can recommend her without reservation as one of the best I’ve taught. " - Dr. Eugene Galvin, Catholic University of America Voice Faculty

"Megan is passionate about her creative work with young people, an energetic and imaginative member of our teaching faculty, consistent, positive, caring, and devoted.  She is always looking to develop as a teacher and a member of our creative community; she accepts feedback openly and is thoughtful about integrating new ideas into her classes.  Megan is a true team player; she collaborates effectively with other teaching artists, communicates well with families, and is always willing to take on more challenges and special projects.  At the end of every program session in our Kids Company Showcase class, after the culminating performance, Megan and her co-teacher share some reflection on each student with the families.  In these beautiful offerings, her thoughtful reflection on each individual student truly highlights her strength and excellence as an educator."  - Amanda Selwyn, Director of Community Arts Dept.
