Meg Dagon began playing the violin in the fourth grade, after seeing a performance of Halloween music by local high school orchestra students (in costume). She continued studying violin from then on as a part of her public school orchestra program in Connecticut, and sees it as one of the most formative experiences of her childhood.
A strong proponent of public school music programs, Meg holds two degrees in music education: Ithaca College (B.M.) and University of Hartford Hartt School of Music (M.M.). Meg performs in a variety of orchestras throughout New England, and previously studied and performed in Vienna, Austria and the Bavaria region of Germany. Meg is currently the fourth and fifth grade orchestra director for Belmont Public Schools, where she is lucky enough to play music every day with her students. Prior to this, Meg was the elementary and high school orchestra director in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.
In her free time, Meg enjoys hiking in the White Mountains and is working on the NH 48.
