A vibrant musician and innovative educator, Arizona-born harpist Megan Metheney uses her classical training to push the harp envelope, using this instrument to create a sound and style truly her own. Her music showcases a mix of jazz, folk, contemporary, and classical styles that always drive after authentic, meaningful expression.
Megan holds a BM in harp from the University of Arizona with jazz harpist Carrol McLaughlin and a MM from the University of Texas at Austin under Delaine Fedson. She gained a Premiere Prix from the music conservatory in Grasse, France, under the tutelage of Alessandra Magrini and Elisabeth Fontan-Binoche. She cherishes the memories of her first harp lessons at the age of 12 with Adrienne Bridgewater.
Megan lives in the "petit village" of Cabris, France, with her husband and two daughters, Eloise and Josephine.
Megan wrote an article for Sylvia's monthly e-newsletter, telling about her harp journey. You can read the article here.
