Megan’s musical journey began in fifth grade when she joined the percussion section in
her school’s band program. She quickly fell in love with the arts and began also playing
in the jazz band, both as a drummer and as a vibraphonist. In high school, Megan was
drumline captain in the marching band and played in the pit orchestra for musicals. Also
in high school, she began playing with the Crystal Lake Strikers Drumline and learned to
play steel drums in Potts and Pans Steelband. Megan went on to obtain a Bachelor of
Arts degree from Columbia College Chicago, where she studied both percussion
performance and music composition.
