Meet Megan Williams
Megan holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education and Music Therapy from the University of Iowa as well as a Master’s degree in Special Education from the University of Florida. In 2012, she retired from her 30-year career, working at a residential center for developmentally disabled adults in Gainesville, Florida.
Megan is an accomplished musician who began her musical training in High School. She studied voice and has performed in many Chorus groups and Church choirs over the years. She also played the guitar with folk and bluegrass groups before learning to play the mountain dulcimer.
Megan has been playing the mountain dulcimer since 2007. Her first dulcimer classes were at the John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina. In 2013, she retired to Ellijay, Georgia and joined Blue Ridge Dulcimer Club. Megan has been teaching the dulcimer since 2014. She is now enrolled in a Dulcimer Teacher Certification program at Western Carolina University which she will complete in 2017.
Megan’s dulcimer students often say she is a wonderful, patient teacher. She loves to share her enthusiasm for the dulcimer. She says “It is a beautiful sounding traditional mountain instrument, a joy to play and enjoy with others.” She is very proud of her adult students and their excellent progress. Most of them started as absolute beginners with little or no musical background. Now they can play as a group and enjoy playing for Nursing Homes and an Assisted Living Center.
